Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad addressed the international community's efforts to engage Iran in nuclear talks, saying that "holding talks with Iran is the best choice for you. You have no other option. All the other ways are closed. You know the fact very well," he said on Sunday, according to a Press TV report.
Ahmadinejad added, "They thought they can weaken the Iranian nation through imposing sanctions and posing threats, but Iranians have shown integrity, convergence and strength," Press TV reported.
The Iranian president continued, "The Iranian nation will not give up an iota of its international rights," according to the report.
