Iran says West's 'arrogance' could doom nuke talks

TEHERAN, Iran — Iran's president said Wednesday that upcoming talks with six world powers about its disputed nuclear program will fail if those nations continue along what he called a "path of arrogance."
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's comments, made in an address to a crowd of thousands in northeastern Iran, cast doubt on any possible progress in talks that Teheran has said it is ready to hold with the six powers — the US Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany — sometime after November 10.
"If you want to continue the previous path of arrogance ... these people (the Iranian nation) will pursue you until you end up in hell," Ahmadinejad said in a speech broadcast live on state television.
