ISTANBUL — Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Tuesday a nuclear swap deal brokered by Turkey and Brazil is a one-time opportunity that should not be missed.

Ahmadinejad, speaking to reporters on the sidelines of a security summit, also said new sanctions against his country would be a mistake and that U.S. President Barack Obama stands to lose unless he changes his policies toward Iran. He did not elaborate.

"The meeting in Teheran created an opportunity for the US administration and for its allies and we still hope that they will be able to use this opportunity. We say that this opportunity will not be repeated," Ahmadinejad said of the nuclear swap deal.

Ahmadinejad was speaking days before the UN Security Council is expected to vote to punish Teheran for its refusal to heed demands to curb its nuclear program.
