Ahmadinejad urges Obama to accept nuke swap deal

KERMAN, Iran — Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is urging US President Barack Obama to accept a nuclear fuel swap deal, warning the US leader will miss a historic opportunity for improved cooperation from Tehran.
Ahamdinejad says there are those "who want to pit Mr. Obama against the Iranian nation and bring him to the point of no return, where the path to his friendship with Iran will be blocked forever."
Washington says Iran's offer — brokered last week by Brazil and Turkey — is an attempt by Tehran to avoid a new round of UN sanctions over its controversial nuclear program, which the West fears is geared toward nuclear weapons.
