Iran will not back down on its nuclear program despite economic pressures and Western sanctions, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Tuesday at a press conference in Tehran.


"If some think they can make pressure on Iran, they are wrong and must correct their attitude. We are not a people who will fall on the nuclear issue," he said.

Speaking of the effects of the international sanctions, he said that "The enemy believes it can break the resistance of the Iranian people, but he is mistaken."


Turning his attention to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's UN General Assembly address, Ahmadinejad said that the demand for the international community to set a "red line" for Iran was "insulting."


He further condemned Netanyahu's speech as "entrapment" and said that his illustration of the Iranian bomb was "primitive."


"The Zionist regime is ruled by the US and the US is ruled by the Zionist regime," he said.
