Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said he will not discuss his country's nuclear ambitions at proposed nuclear talks.
The announcement comes a day after Iran offered to resume nuclear talks with the United Nations.
"The negotiations must be based on justice and respect. It means that they (the West) should dismount from their ivory towers and put aside their arrogance and pride and negotiate in an even and respectful setting with us," Ahmadinejad said.
The security council hoped to discuss Iran's nuclear ambitions, but Ahmadinejad now says he will only talk about resolving global issues and promoting peace.
It is widely believed that Iran is using its nuclear facilities to make weapons.
