Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad called for negotiations with the US over the nuclear issue and mocked the latest round of sanctions the US helped push through the UN Security Council on Monday.
"We are for negotiations, but to do so you have to sit down like a good boy," Ahmadinejad was quoted by AFP as saying in reference to the US in a speech broadcast live on state television. "They adopt a resolution to force a dialogue, but this cowboy logic has no place in Iran."
Ahmadinejad also criticized the US for opposing Iran's nuclear program out of the fear that it will acquire a nuclear weapon when the US has over "5,000 fourth and fifth generation atomic bombs."
