President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad made the comment after talking with Turkey's prime minister during a gathering of world leaders at the United Nations, Iran's state-run Islamic Republic News Agency said.

Ahmadinejad repeated promises that Iran will not develop nuclear weapons, the report said. Then he added: "Iran is ready to transfer nuclear know-how to the Islamic countries due to their need."

At the United Nations, foreign ministers of Britain, France and Germany the three European countries negotiating with Iran on behalf of the European Union emerged from a meeting with Iran's new foreign minister, Manouchehr Mottaki, and its top nuclear negotiator, Ali Larijani, to say that the offer they had made earlier was still on the table.

"We put forth proposals. They are still on the table," British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw said after the 80-minute meeting. "They have yet properly to be considered by the other side."

German Foreign Minister Joshcka Fischer said the EU is waiting for the new Iranian government to make its proposals.
