(Newser) – Usually when Mahmoud Ahmadinejad opens his mouth the West cringes, but today the Iranian leader is calling for renewed international talks about its nuclear program. Ahmadinejad gave no timeframe, but today told a crowd: "They have come and say, "We will negotiate.' We say, "All right, we will negotiate with you.'" Talks foundered a year ago over Iran's staunch refusal to stop enriching uranium, notes the AP. An EU official responded that talks should be held next month.
