UNITED NATIONS, (Reuters) – Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Thursday that talks with the European Union on Tehran’s nuclear program were “on the right path” and he hoped no one would disrupt them.

“We believe those negotiations are moving on the right path. Hopefully others will not disrupt the work — in small ways perhaps. It is a constructive path to take,” he told a news conference at United Nations headquarters in New York.

Responding to U.N. Security Council demands, Ahmadinejad said Iran was prepared to negotiate on suspending uranium enrichment “under fair and just conditions” but he gave no time-frame for doing so.
