Brazil seeks Iran nuclear talks

President Lula tells Al Jazeera world leaders must engage in direct talks with Tehran.

    Luiz Inacio Lula Da Silva, Brazil's president, is visiting Iran in a last-ditch effort to help prevent the renewing of UN sactions on Iran over its nuclear programme.

    Lula said world leaders who are part of the UN Security Council must engage in direct talks and negotiations with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Iran's president, to resolve the nuclear issue.

    Al Jazeera's Nick Clark interviewed the Brazilian president during his stopover in Qatar.
