Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad claimed that US and European sanction efforts against his country would backfire in an interview with CBS News that aired Monday night in the US. Ahmadinejad also rejected suggestions that Teheran was providing assistance to Taliban forces in Afghanistan.

"I think the policies by the Europeans and the Americans are ridiculous. They think they are going to influence the life of the Iranian society," said Ahmadinejad.  He continued, " In fact, they're imposing sanctions against themselves. Iran is a great nation with a great population. We have vast and rich resources and it's very much easy for us to overcome old problems."
