E-mail this to a friend Printable version Iran's president (R) had a warm welcome from his Turkish counterpart President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has warned Iran will not agree to talks on its nuclear programme if a fourth round of UN sanctions are imposed.
He also said a nuclear fuel-swap deal brokered by Turkey and Brazil was an offer that would not be repeated.
Mr Ahmadinejad urged Russia not to side with Iran's enemies in the vote, which is due to be held on Wednesday.
The sanctions would tighten financial curbs and shipping inspections on Iran, and expand a limited arms embargo.
The BBC's Barbara Plett at UN headquarters in New York says there is little doubt the resolution will be adopted.

US Secretary of Defence Robert Gates: "The clock is ticking"
Mr Ahmadinejad will travel to China on Friday and visit the World Expo in Shanghai, Beijing's foreign ministry said, but it is not clear if he will hold any talks with Chinese leaders.
The BBC's Jonathan Head in Istanbul says Mr Ahmadinejad reserved particular criticism for Israel.
Labelling it a "fake, Zionist regime", he said it had started the "countdown to its destruction" through its attack last week on a Gaza-bound aid flotilla.

Iran - which denies its nuclear programme has military aims - agreed in May to deposit 1,200kg of low-enriched uranium with Turkey, in return for reactor fuel.
But Western powers said the agreement was too little too late.
The draft resolution includes the following proposals:

Urging all states to inspect cargo suspected of containing banned items to and from Iran in their territory, including seaports and airports
Calls on countries to block financial transactions and ban the licensing of Iranian banks if they suspect a link to nuclear activities
Turkey, Brazil and Lebanon are not expected to back this week's proposed UN resolution, but none of them has a veto.
Western diplomats expect 12 countries, including all five veto-holding permanent council members, to vote for the
