President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has struck a more moderate tone towards the United States ahead of a key meeting on Iran's nuclear drive, saying talks with its archenemy were possible in the future. "It is possible that in the near future talks in different fields will take place with the United States," the state news agency quoted Ahmadinejad as saying in an interview with state television late on Monday. Ahmadinejad said that in the next months "certain things will happen" and insisted that no power in the world could afford to ignore Iran. "Whichever party is elected in the United States will have to take note of this. In this regard we have received many messages," he said, referring to the US presidential election in November.
