    Brazilian President Luis Inacio Lula da Silva has criticised the United States for its hardline approach to Iran's nuclear programmes.

    He says Iran has shown willingness to negotiate its stance and other countries must do the same.

    The US wants new and tougher sanctions against Iran, despite Tehran saying it will swap low-enriched uranium for nuclear fuel.

    Patty Culhane reports.
