WASHINGTON (AFP) - Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said in an interview published on Monday that he was willing to make a deal on limiting his country's stockpile of enriched uranium but expressed doubt in the West's willingness to negotiate in good faith.

"We have always been ready and we are ready" to make a deal that will address Western concerns, he was quoted as saying in an interview with the Washington Post.

"We have given many sound proposals as well," the Iranian president said.

"Fundamentally, we have no concerns about moving forward with the dialogue, we have always wanted a dialogue. We have a very clear logic: We do believe that if everyone adheres to the rule of law and everyone respects all parties, that there will be no problems."
