Iran says West's 'arrogance' could doom nuke talks

Iran says West's 'arrogance' could doom nuke talks

Iran's president says upcoming talks with six world powers about its disputed nuclear program will fail if the West 'continues the previous path of arrogance.'
The comments by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Wednesday cast doubt on any possible progress in talks that Iran has said it is ready to hold with the six powers _ the U.S. Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany _ sometime after November 10.
The U.S. and some of its allies suspect Iran's nuclear program is aimed at producing weapons, but Iran denies that.
Iran's Supreme National Security Council, which handles the country's nuclear negotiations, and the European Union's foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton are already exchanging letters on the date and place of the meeting.
