"All these powers are interfering in our internal affairs in the region," he said. He did identify which outside powers he meant.

Ahmadinejad is in Pakistan attending a meeting with the leaders of neighboring Pakistan and Afghanistan aimed at promoting regional stability.

"There is no fundamental problem among the countries of the region. All the problems are coming from outside," he said.

The West accuses Iran of using its nuclear program to pursue weapons capability and has imposed sanctions on its oil industry which have hit its wider economy hard.

Iran rejects the charge and insists its program is purely for peaceful nuclear power generation purposes.
