Ahmadinejad: Sanctions make negotiations 'more difficult'

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Saturday that new sanctions imposed on the Islamic Republic by the US and other western nations make the prospect of negotiations on Tehran's nuclear program "more difficult," AFP reported.
"They vote on resolutions, impose sanctions, use all the tools against us, and they want us to negotiate," Ahmadinejad was quoted as saying on Iranian television.
"We have always said we are willing to negotiate and cooperate. Negotiations are worth more than confrontation, but it seems [western nations] don't understand this and always return to confrontation," he added.
