TEHRAN - Threats by the European Union and the United States have left no room for constructive talks over Iran's nuclear dossier, Iranian chief nuclear negotiator Ali Larijani said Thursday.

"As long as there are threats, no constructive contents can be followed in the talks," Larijani told state television.

The top nuclear official said any talks without the acknowledgment of Iran's right to nuclear activities had no meaning.

Larijani added that not the negotiation partners but results were important for Iran as the main aim is pursuing atomic technology.

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad had told state television on Wednesday that Iran has found new negotiation partners in Europe other than the E.U. trio of Britain, France and Germany, but did not disclose which countries.

Also Ahmadinejad reiterated that although Iran was in favour of negotiations, this was only if the legitimate requests of the people to have nuclear technology were not blocked.
