Iran's president on Thursday said his country will not negotiate over its "inalienable rights" to have a nuclear program, which the West fears is geared toward making atomic bombs. "My nation has chosen its path. Having said that, I also point out that we don't want to pick a fight with any country but we are very capable of defending ourselves and securing our national interests," President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who is on a three-day visit to Malaysia, told reporters.
