Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Tuesday that his country will never recognize Israel, the official IRNA news agency reported.

"Whoever intends to talk with the Iranian nation should know that Iranians would never recognize the Zionist regime," Ahmadinejad said.

Addressing a crowd in Ahvaz, the capital of Iran's southwestern Khouzestan province, he claimed readiness to hold talks with those who would push Israel to cease confrontation with Palestinians.

"Iran is ready to hold talks with those urging an end to Israeli crimes, occupation, aggression, ideology and Zionism," the president was quoted as saying.

Reiterating his rhetoric against the country's arch-foe, Iran's president said Friday that Israel could not prolong its existence since the original motive with its being no longer exists.

"The Palestinians have seen an increase in Israeli crimes because the Israeli regime is aware that it has reached the end of the line," Press TV quoted Ahmadinejad as saying.

Iran recently hanged an Israeli spy to show that it had entered a "serious intelligence war" with Israel.

The United States and its allies have accused Iran of trying to develop nuclear weapons under the cover of a civilian nuclear program.

The United States and Israel have consistently refused to rule out the possibility of military strikes against Iran over its refusal to halt its nuclear program.

Iran has denied the U.S. charges and insisted that its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes only.
