Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad stated Thursday that sanctions are ineffective and the West should drop its aggressive approach if talks on Tehran's nuclear program are to be successful. Ahmadinejad said in Azerbaijan that his country is prepared to return to six-party talks on its atomic energy program.
"If they want their negotiations to be successful, they must reject their exploitative approach. If they take the side of justice, then we could reach certain results, and could cooperate on world issues," he said, according to the AP. "But, if they want to talk to us using old methods, then they must know that the results of negotiations will remain the same. Iran has chosen its own path."
He added: "Iran won't be scared by embargoes."
