Iran's president says Teheran will not hold talks with the West over its disputed nuclear program until late August to "punish" world powers for imposing tougher economic sanctions.

The UN Security Council approved new sanctions against Iran earlier this month over Teheran's refusal to halt uranium enrichment.

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told reporters Monday in Teheran that the decision is aimed at "punishing them (the West) to teach them the custom of talking to our nation."
