Iran's president defiant in face of new sanctions

NEW YORK — Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Tuesday that his country won't be deterred by the threat of new UN economic sanctions over its nuclear program.
The Iranian president said new sanctions would mean that US President Barack Obama has given up on his campaign to engage Iran diplomatically.
"While we do not welcome sanctions, we do not fear them either," Ahmadinejad said. "We feel that the US government will be damaged more than us by those sanctions."
