TEHERAN, Iran — Iran's president claimed the United States will one day apologize and beg Teheran for the two countries resume to diplomatic relations, the official IRNA news agency reported.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad also said the US administration has allegedly become so weakened that it can't harm Iran in any way.

"A day will come when the US, its arrogance at its weakest point, will come to Iran and while apologizing, will plead with Teheran that relations with the Islamic Republic of Iran be restored," IRNA quoted Ahmadinejad as saying late Sunday.

Ahmadinejad claimed that "despite all their threats," the US sanctions and pressures have not hurt Iran.

The Iranian leader's rhetoric often includes comments seeking to portray Iran as somehow superior to America.

Ahmadinejad has made a slew of different statements, at times urging US-Iranian friendship while at other times predicting America's demise.
