Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Sunday compared the power of his country's enemies to a "mosquito," saying Tehran now deals with the West over its nuclear activities from a position of power.
"While enemies have used all their capacities ... the Iranian nation is standing powerfully and they are like a mosquito," a government Web site quoted Ahmadinejad early Sunday as saying. He added Iran doesn't trust the West when it sits for talks.
"Given the negative record of Western powers, the Iranian government ... looks at the talks with no trust. But realities dictate to them to interact with the Iranian nation," he said according to the site.
