Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says talks with the major powers over Iran's  disputed nuclear program will start in early September regardless of the conditions he set earlier.

Ahmadinejad last month gave conditions for talks with the U.N. Security Council and Germany including their stance on Israel's nuclear program and Iran.

Ahmedinajad told state TV late Monday, however, that Iran would "follow negotiations" whether or not the conditions are met.

The European Union and Canada on Monday adopted a new round of sanctions against Iran, targeting the country's foreign trade, banking and energy sectors.

The West has accused Iran of seeking to develop atomic weapons. Iran says its nuclear program is peaceful.
