"In order to clarify the basics of the bilateral talks, what is your (West's) position concerning the Zionist (Israel) regimes' nuclear weapons?" the letter was quoted as saying by IRNA.

"Your response to the above-mentioned questions can pave the ground for the talks to remove the common global concerns over ( failures in) establishing peace, justice and welfare for the nations," said Jalili urging the West to try to gain Iranians' trust.

He said "Today, more than ever, you need our nation's trust in you," adding that "Therefore, drop the wrong dual-strategy" of imposing sanctions and compensate for your last mistakes.

Repeating earlier remarks of Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, he maintained that in case Iran's questions are responded appropriately, the countries which are interested can take part in the nuclear talks between Iran and the West from Sept. 1, according to IRNA.

Earlier in June, Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said in the forthcoming nuclear fuel swap talks, Iran would include Turkey and Brazil in the negotiations.

According to the letter, the conditions have already been set by Ahmadinejad.
