Ahmadinejad urges Obama to accept nuke swap deal
Iran`s president is urging Barack Obama to accept a nuclear fuel swap deal.
Kerman: Iran`s president is urging
Barack Obama to accept a nuclear fuel swap deal, warning the
US leader will miss a historic opportunity for improved
cooperation from Tehran.
Mahmoud Ahamdinejad says there are those "who want to pit
Mr. Obama against the Iranian nation and bring him to the
point of no return, where the path to his friendship with Iran
will be blocked forever."
Washington says Iran`s offer -- brokered last week by
Brazil and Turkey -- is an attempt by Tehran to avoid a new
round of UN sanctions over its controversial nuclear program,
which the West fears is geared toward nuclear weapons.
Ahmadinejad today also assailed Russia, saying it caved
into American pressure for more sanctions against Iran.
