TEHRAN, (Reuters) – Iran told world powers including the United States that talks on its nuclear plans must wait until after the Islamic state’s June 12 presidential election, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Saturday.

“We said we will have no talks before the election. They were insisting to hold negotiations before the election,” Ahmadinejad told a news conference broadcast live and translated by Iran’s English-language Press TV.

“They called several times … and Mr (U.S. President Barack) Obama finally accepted and said: ‘Ok, let’s do it after the election’,” Ahmadinejad said.
