Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Tehran will not accept any preconditions for nuclear talks with EU foreign policy Chief Javier Solana, the English-language satellite channel Press TV reported Tuesday.

"Tehran welcomes negotiations but will not accept the precondition set by the West - the suspension of uranium enrichment," Ahmadinejad was quoted as saying on Monday evening.

Iran is ready to remove all international concerns regarding its nuclear program, he said, adding that Iran is prepared to hold talks with any country over its nuclear standoff, except for the Israeli regime.

Iran's top nuclear negotiator Saeed Jalili and Solana were due to meet in the Swiss city of Geneva on Saturday in an attempt to break the deadlock in the nuclear issue.

Solana and Jalili will share points in two packages of incentives, said Ahmadinejad.

Solana handed over an updated package of incentives proposed by world powers and a letter from foreign ministers of the six countries and himself to Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki last month.

Iran responded to the package in a letter to Solana early this month and also presented its own package of proposals to the world powers.
