Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinjad on Wednesday said that Iran is prepared to discuss a potential swap of nuclear fuel during talks scheduled to resume in January, according to a Reuters report.

Ahmadadinejad told the five permanent nations of the UN Security Council plus Germany (P5+1) to drop the intent of halting his country's drive for nuclear technology and invited the countries to aid in constructing the 20 planned nuclear power stations.

"We are in favor of cooperation and they should come and cooperate with us and build us 20 nuclear plants," Ahmadinejad was quoted by the semi-official Mehr news agency.

The Iranian president added that Teheran will not discuss ending uranium enrichment during scheduled talks in Turkey and mentioned three "red lines that Iran would not cross."
