Los Angeles Times / Borzou Daragahi

Iran set tough terms Monday for the resumption of nuclear talks, vowing to punish world powers for imposing new sanctions on the Islamic Republic.

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Monday that stalled talks could continue only if the United States, Russia, China and Western Europe included other countries in the discussions, clarified their stance on Israel's undeclared nuclear weapons arsenal, submitted to the rules of the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty and specified whether the talks would be friendly or hostile.
