Tehran, Sept 18, IRNA-The UN headquarters is the best place for debate between the Iranian and US presidents, said Government Spokesman Gholam-Hossein Elham here on Monday.
"The matter is to hold debate but not talk or dialogue and if they (the Iranian and US presidents) are to debate, the UN is the best place for the purpose," said Elham when asked in his weekly press briefing whether President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad would be ready to hold talks with his US counterpart George W. Bush.
President Ahmadinejad in his recent press conference invited his US counterpart to a live televised face-to-face debate on condition that there should be no censorship.
The Iranian president is to arrive in New York on Tuesday to attend the UN General Assembly meeting.
