Ahmadinejad tells AP Iran is an opportunity for US
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (ah-muh-DEE'-neh-zhahd) says his country is not a threat to the United States as President Barack Obama has said, but "an opportunity", Associated Press reported.
In an interview with The Associated Press on Tuesday, the Iranian leader refused to give an explicit opinion of his American counterpart. "Is this a question to test my IQ?" he said in response.
The two leaders are both in New York to attend the U.N. General Assembly meetings, but U.S. officials are making sure they will not cross paths in any way.
Ahmadinejad says Obama must make "big changes" in policy toward Afghanistan, Iraq, and the Mideast, and that Obama will find a friend in Iran if he does so.
