is ready for debate with US presidential candidates at UN headquarters on global
developments in presence of world media.
President Ahmadinejad made the remark in a press conference in presence of
domestic and foreign reporters in Tehran.
"I have no plan to meet with US politicians but as I have already declared I am
ready for debate with the US presidential candidates at UN headquarters," he

Peaceful nature of Iran's nuclear program has been verified 12 times
Ahmadinejad said that IAEA has verified peaceful nature of Iran's nuclear
program 12 ties and there is no problem to this end.
The president made the remark in a press conference in presence of domestic and
foreign reporters in Tehran.
The new report issued by ElBaradei has confirmed that the ountry's nuclear
program has no diverted from its right track, he said.
The IAEA should act within its boundaries and is not allowed to pursue claims
raised by the US which have nothing to do with the governing rules of the IAEA,
he pointed out.
The Iranian nation will never give up even one iota and those who seek to step
up economic sanctions against Iran are very weak and disappointed, he said.
As soon as they toughen sanctions against Iran, the Iranian nation will pray to
God and try to meet its own needs
single-handedly, he said.
Iran is self-sufficient in many scientific fields and therefore their attempts
to tighten economic sanctions will defame themselves, he said.
"I advise the leaders of western countries to review their decisions, because as
soon as they take action against us, they will regret and there will be now way
to stop us," said the president.
"Hundreds of American businessmen want to make financial deals with Iran and
even the European investors call for making investment in Iran but it is we who
set preconditions for them," he said.
On possibility of military actions against Iran, the
president said they should know that the era of such propaganda is over.
They should know that their attempts will not bear any fruits, underlined
Economic reform plan to be made public after New York visit
Ahmadinejad said the government has drafted a bill on economic reform which will
be made public after his trip to New York. He lauded the Iranian people for
their contribution to the plan.
The world is now on the threshold of a big change, he said adding that the era
of domination, wealth, deceit, and propaganda is over and the era of wisdom,
rationality and high values has just begun.
The US hegemony is on the decline and the Zionist regime is now approaching its
dead-end, he said.
Nations have waken up and seek justice and brotherhood in their affairs, pointed
out the president.
By grace to God, the Islamic Republic of Iran has attained a remarkable and
excellent status on the international scene, he said.
