Tehran (dpa) - Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Tuesday warned the European Union trio - Britain, France and Germany - against "messing around" with Iran over issue of its nuclear programme.

"These three European countries should know that if they insist on preventing the Iranian nation from its (nuclear) rights, then our people would consider this as hostility and accordingly change its approach," Ahmadinejad said in a speech in Kermanshah, western Iran.

"Do not mess with Iran as friendship with Iran will be to your benefit in the future," the president said in a televised speech.

Ahmadinejad reiterated that Iran would stick to its nuclear programmes and that no threats would "hinder the nation's decisive move in this regard."
