MOSCOW - Iran is ready for new talks with global powers on its nuclear program but the United States and others seeking to rein in its uranium enrichment activities need to be more constructive, Tehran's ambassador to Russia said on Monday.

Barack Obama's re-election has increased the chances of a revival of talks with Iran involving six world powers, but the envoy said the US President should "change the conduct of the United States as regards Iran and choose a more logical approach."

Ambassador Reza Sajjadi said senior Iranian officials had conveyed Tehran's readiness for new negotiations to Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov last week, but his remarks appeared to set a firm tone for any talks.
