Iran's president has insisted enriching uranium to 20 percent "is our right" and not a step towards a bomb, as a US envoy warned the window for dialogue over Tehran's nuclear programme was closing.

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said in an interview that the enrichment activity, which world powers are trying to curb in fraught talks with Iran, "is one of our rights in terms of international law".

Ahmadinejad hinted however that Iran could be open to stopping 20 percent enrichment -- if world powers offer significant concessions.
