TEHERAN, Iran — Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has welcomed mediation by Brazil in a nuclear deal with the West.

The president's website said late Tuesday that Ahmadinejad "in principle" approves of Brazil having a role in reviving the UN-backed deal to exchange nuclear fuel for Iran's stock of enriched uranium.

The website said that Ahmadinejad spoke about it over the telephone with Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez.
