Iran sends EU letter on conditions for nuke talks

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) - State TV says Iran has sent a letter to the European Union detailing its conditions for talks about the country's nuclear program and is demanding the EU guarantee there would be no threats against Tehran.

The letter follows President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's announcement a week ago in which he set Iran's conditions. He said Tehran would not hold such talks until late August to punish the West for the latest U.N. sanctions imposed on Iran.

Tuesday's report says Iran's top nuclear negotiator, Saeed Jalili, sent the letter to EU's foreign policy chief, Catherine Ashton. It cites the letter as saying the EU must make it clear whether the talks will be aimed at "interaction or confrontation."

The West accuses Iran of seeking to develop atomic weapons. Iran denies the charge.
