TEHRAN (AFP/Reuters) Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Saturday Iran still distrusts Western powers when it comes to holding talks, but that he also hopes the nuclear dialogue between the two sides will continue. His comments came after the White House warned that US President Barack Obama will not wait for ever for Tehrans response to a UN-drafted deal to supply Iran with nuclear fuel in exchange for its low-enriched uranium (LEU). Senior Iranian lawmakers voiced firm opposition to the UN-drafted nuclear fuel deal, casting further doubt on a proposal aimed at easing international tension over Tehrans atomic activities and raising the possibility that Tehran may turn down the proposed deal. The best way for you is to respect the Iranian nation and cooperate honestly with this nation, Ahmadinejad said at a function in northeastern Iran, addressing Western powers, the official IRNA news agency reported. He said Iran approaches the talks with Western powers over Tehrans nuclear programme with a sense of distrust, because of what he called their past negative record. We hope the negotiations continue and evil powers dont indulge in mischief because the Zionist regime and other domineering powers are unhappy with the talks, he told a local television channel in the northeast late on Friday. The government, like all Iranian people, looks at the negotiations with no trust, given the negative record of Western powers. Ahmadinejad appeared to return to his traditional anti-West rhetoric after a positive comment on Thursday that conditions were ready for nuclear cooperation between Iran and world powers. The demand that we should deliver all enriched nuclear material to other countries so that they would supply Tehrans fuel needs is completely out of the question, ILNA news agency quoted MP Kazem Jalali, the spokesman of parliaments national security and foreign policy committee, as saying. The committees head Alaeddin Boroujerdi echoed that view. We are completely opposed to the proposal on delivering uranium with 3.5 per cent enrichment in exchange for uranium with 20 percent enrichment, ISNA news agency quoted him as saying. There is no guarantee they would give us fuel with 20pc enrichment in exchange for our delivered LEU, he said.
