(CNN) -- Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Tuesday that Iran has agreed to another round of nuclear talks with the United States and other nations.

Ahmadinejad did not provide a date for when the talks would start, in the speech televised by Iran's state-run Press TV.

"Now they say they want talks. We have said OK. We are always ready for talks as long as the talks are handled with respect," Ahmadinejad said to the cheering crowd.

Last month, the European Union's foreign policy chief said Iran has suggested that new talks should happen around December 5.
