Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Thursday Iran will announce its conditions for nuclear talks with powers next week, the semi-official Fars news agency reported.

Responding to the UN Security Council's sanctions resolution against Iran, Ahmadinejad said "we will announce our conditions for talks with these countries (world powers) next week," the report said.

On June 9, the UN Security Council adopted a resolution to impose a fourth round of sanctions against Iran over its suspected nuclear program.

"By adopting the resolution, they (the powers) made their move and now it is our turn," Ahmadinejad said, adding that "they issue the resolution and then they say (to us) come and talk. Very well, then come and talk."

"But we will talk a way to make you regret," he said when addressing a group of Iranian clerics on Thursday, according to Fars.

Stressing that Iran never fears the sanctions, Ahmadinejad said, "Those countries which voted for the resolution do fear themselves since soon after they passed the resolution they declared that they want to talk with Iran," according to state IRIB TV.

"Those countries threaten and think that the Iranian nation are afraid of them, but great Iranians will nullify their threats," he was quoted as saying.

"Iran's enemies are intending to dominate the world via the Middle East, but Iranians will not allow such a thing (to happen), " he added.

The United States and other Western countries have suspected Iran of developing nuclear weapons under the guise of a civilian nuclear energy program, a charge denied by Iran.
