Ahmadinejad wants direct talks with US on nuclear issue
President invited all nuclear scientists to inspect Iran's nuclear sites to observe that there is no weapons program inside Iran.
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Thursday that Iran's nuclear program has been politicized and the dispute should be resolved by direct talks between Iran and the United States.
President Ahmadinejad made the remarks in a press conference with foreign media on the sidelines of the fifth Democracy Forum in Bali, Indonesia.
He said that all member states of the IAEA and even those involved in G5+1 talks say explicitly that Iran should resolve the issue through talks with the United Sates.
The president invited all nuclear scientists to inspect Iran's nuclear sites to observe that there is no weapons program inside Iran.
"We have declared that the official representatives from other states can inspect Iran's nuclear sites as Iran is the only country in the world which has opened the door of its nuclear sites to the world media," said the Iranian president.
Criticizing the weak performance of the IAEA, he expressed regret that the international agency is operating under influence of colonial policies dictated by Washington.
He said that to resolve the issue there is no need for interference of any other new organization and in case the US administration amends its approach, it will be to the benefit of the government and nation, so that the issue will be resolved.
