Iran's President said on Wednesday the country will offer a new package of proposal for future talks with the P5+1 over its nuclear program.

"We dispatched a package for negotiations last year but today the situation has changed and great developments have happened in the world during one year," Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said in a speech for a crowd gathered in Kerman city during his 56th provincial tour.

"We design a new package, it will be prepared and we will present it, we will have dialogue based on it which guarantees peace, justice, respect for nations and their participation in resolving the global issues," he added.

They (westerns) have issued statement that they are going to resolve problems through diplomacy and dialogue, he continued, Iran's nation welcomes logic, dialogue and constructive cooperation based on respect.

The President, however, advised the West to change approaches.

You know that you are in a weak position, empty-handed and you can't succeed by use of force, we recommend you to rectify your literature while addressing other nations, respect nations and do not talk with Iranians on the basis of selfishness or otherwise you will receive the same response that Bush did, he stated.

Those who speak of alteration should bring fundamental change in their policies and behavior, they should end speaking with nations arrogantly and should recognize and respect their rights, they should also withdraw their forces from across the world, he noted.

Ahmadinejad further urged US and other nuclear weapon possessors to destroy their weapons of mass destruction so that people can live in peace.

"What have nations done wrong that they have to live next to threats raised from their atomic arsenals? If they seek real change they must close their military bases and respect nations' independence and values."

The Development and Proliferation of
Nuclear Weapons

Today eight countries are possessing nuclear weapons. The five nuclear weapons states United States, Russia (former Soviet Union), United Kingdom, France and China, are the only countries allowed to have nuclear weapons according to the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) from 1970. All members of the United Nations except Israel, India and Pakistan have signed the NPT.

Ahmadinejad on Thursday, on the occasion of the 4th national day of nuclear technology, inaugurated the country's first Fuel Manufacturing Plant (FMP) in Isfahan and announced that it has tested two types of new high-capacity centrifuges.

The Head of Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI), Gholam Reza Aghazadeh said that the high-capacity centrifuges were 5 to 6 times faster than the older ones. He said around 7000 centrifuges have been installed in Natanz facilities.

The deputy head of AEOI, Mohammad Saeedi also said production of nuclear fuel assemblies in Isfahan's FMP must have ended the West ambiguities on Iran's fuel cycle because it showed that the final purpose of the country's enrichment activities is to produce fuel assemblies for research and electricity-generating reactors.

The P5+1 intends to resume talks with Tehran to reach a solution for the dispute this time with the US present at the negotiation table.
