The United States refused on Monday to provide security guarantees for Iran to make sure the country does not develop nuclear weapons.

"Before anybody asks the United States to do something, it's up to Iran to answer the questions, act like a responsible member of the international community, and stop violating its agreements with the EU-3 and others," State Department deputy spokesman Adam Ereli said at a briefing.

All dealings with Iran should focus on "a consistent and established pattern of Iranian misbehavior and Iranian violation of its commitments and Iranian deception," Ereli said.

But Ereli said the United States supports the diplomatic efforts by the EU trio of Britain, France and Germany to head off Iran's nuclear ambitions.

Ereli's remarks followed a suggestion by Mohamed Elbaradei, chief of the International Atomic Energy Agency, who said on Monday in Stockholm that he believed that the United States would have to give Iran security guarantee before a final agreement could be reached on Iran's atomic programs.

Iran's talks with the EU have been stalled after Iran announced its decision to resume uranium conversion activities recently.
