TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran's president says not even 100,000 U.N. Security Council resolutions will stop his country's nuclear ambitions.

The semiofficial Fars news agency says Mahmoud Ahmadinejad made the remarks during a meeting with a group of journalists Tuesday in Tehran.

Iran has hardened its position on its nuclear program ahead of Jan. 21-22 talks with world powers in Istanbul, Turkey. Tehran says it will refuse to talk about its right to enrich uranium.

Uranium enrichment lies at the heart of Iran's dispute with the West, a technology that can be used to produce nuclear fuel or materials for a warhead.

The U.S. and some of its allies accuse Iran of seeking to develop a nuclear weapons capability, a charge Iran denies.
