Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Monday that talks over its nuclear issue should be held in the framework of IAEA.

"We have announced that ... (Iran's) nuclear issue is already over. Our opinion is that the nuclear program (of Iran) will be only in the framework of International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA)and the talks outside IAEA will only be about the participation in the management of the globe and about peace in the world," Ahmadinejad said in a press conference held here on Monday.

"We won't allow anyone outside the conventions and framework (of IAEA) to talk about Iran's rightful nuclear issue," he added.

However, Iran's president extended his invitation to U.S. President Barack Obama to attend a debate in the United Nations headquarters on global issues and ways to tackle them.

Ahmadinejad had also invited U.S. ex-president George W. Bush to participate in a live debate with him in the United Nations over global diverse issues, but Bush did not give response to his invitation.

On Iran's package proposal to the world's major powers, Ahmadinejad told reporters on Monday "the proposal package of ours will be presented and if we have talks after (Iran's presidential) elections (on June 12) we will have talks (on the package)."

In April, Iran's Ahmadinejad announced that Iran would offer new proposal package to the world and "The document would be the guarantee of peace and justice in the world, of respect to the rights of nations, and of participation of all the governments and nations to resolve the issues of the world."

In response to West's packages of incentives to encourage Iran to halt its sensitive nuclear program, Iran offered its own package to France, Britain, Russia, China and the United States, plus Germany (G5+1) last year, in which Tehran's concern had been directed to the global issues rather than its nuclear program.

The United States and other Western countries claim that Iran intends to secretly develop nuclear weapons. The UN Security Council also requires Iran to suspend its uranium enrichment activity.

Iran, however, insists that its nuclear plan is only for peaceful purposes, vowing to continue its uranium enrichment activity despite pressure and sanctions from Western countries.
