Ahmadinejad abandons preconditions; ready to negotiate

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad abandoned preconditions for talks over Iran's nuclear program late Monday, saying talks would start in early September regardless of the conditions he had set.
Ahmadinejad last month gave conditions for talks with the UN 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.
