President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Sunday that the American people are eager to hear different opinions about the world, and he is looking forward to having the chance to voice them during his trip to the United States, state media reported. The hardline Iranian leader left Sunday for New York to address the UN General Assembly and speak to students and teachers during a forum at Columbia University. The visit has caused a stir in New York. Tensions are high between Washington and Teheran over US accusations that Iran is secretly trying to develop nuclear weapons and helping Shi'ite militias in Iraq that target US troops - claims Iran denies. Ahmadinejad said the American people have been denied "correct information," and his visit will give them a chance to hear a different voice, the official IRNA news agency reported.
