Iranian President Mahmoud Ahamedinejad called for public, one-on-one talks with US President Obama Monday, Reuters reported.

"Toward the end of summer we will hopefully be there for the [UN] General Assembly and I will be ready for one-on-one talks with Mr Obama, in front of the media of course," Ahmadinejad told a conference of Iranian expatriates in Teheran.

"We will offer our solutions for world issues to see whose solutions are better."

Ahmaedinejad made a similar challenge last September, but was declined. He said he made the offer to former US president George W. Bush as well, who didn't accept because he was "scared."
