Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told state TV on Monday that he won't accept any conditions on his country's disputed nuclear program during talks with EU officials this weekend. Major world powers have offered Iran a package of incentives in exchange for a halt to Iran's uranium enrichment - a process that can be used to generate electricity, or make a nuclear weapon. Ahmadinejad told state television Monday that he rejected that condition. He said Saturday's talks will focus on 'common' points instead. Iran's top nuclear negotiator, Saeed Jalili, and EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana are scheduled to meet in Geneva on July 19. Ahmadinejad also said that he'll attend the next UN General Assembly meeting expected to be held in New York in September. Ahmadinejad has attended every annual UN General Assembly meeting since he was elected in 2005. He told state TV on Monday that he will attend September's meeting in order to defend Iran's rights and propose changes to what he called the "unjust" Western system of administering international organizations.
