Ahmadinejad: West failed regarding Iran
Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Thursday the West has failed to break his country's will in the nuclear standoff. " In the nuclear issue, the bullying powers have used up all their capabilities but could not break the will of the Iranian nation," Ahmadinejad was quoted as saying by state television.
On his part, Iran's Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said the US President George W. Bush would leave the White House as a loser. Mottaki made the remarks while criticizing President Bush's wrong policies in Afghanistan, Iraq and Palestine during an interview with the French 'i-Tele,' channel.
He said that the US president was responsible for the massacre of tens of thousand of innocent people in the three countries. If the international system was ruled by a fair structure, then President Bush would be taken accountable for his acts, Mottaki said.
He added that the final countdown has started for the Bush administration.
Asked if Iran would welcome to hold talks with the US in case of the victory of the Democrat hopeful Barack Obama at the US presidential election next November, Mottaki said we should wait and see what would happen after November.
