It can get awfully complicated awfully fast and maybe he is just warning you that this might happen. I would be very very careful.
Are you f*cking kidding me?

I agree that it's weird. But, it's hard to determine his reasons.
I'd just be blunt and say that you'd like to be on friendly terms and care about a relationship on that front, but that that's as far as you're interested going. The friendship isn't going anywhere else than friendship, and that if he wants to pursue that... you do as well.
You may want to phrase it differently, but that's the main idea I'd want to get across.
The two things I can think of are,
a) he's been hurt before and want to make sure you actually care
b) he is asking in terms of a relationship more than friendship (either in agreement or not) and wants to know your intentions
I agree with Cetkat. I think his behaviour is quite weird and that you should be direct. I believe he'd appreciate your honesty.
