AP Interview: Ahmadinejad says still a chance for US, Iran to improve ties
NEW YORK (AP) ' Iran's president tells The Associated Press that he thinks time has not run out for Iran and the U.S. to repair their bad relationship.
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says U.S. President Barack Obama could still make good on a pledge to try to improve on 30 years of enmity. Ahmadinejad, in an interview, says he's open to meeting Obama. He says this week's United Nations General Assembly would have been a good time to do that.
Ahmadinejad also says he doesn't think Obama has anything to worry about his re-election bid, but he says it's up to the American people to decide.
He says the two countries could cooperate in several areas, including intelligence, and could talk about his country's disputed nuclear program.
