Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said in an interview with the Asharq Al-Awsat newspaper that as long as the US continued to pressure his country, he would not engage in any negotiations.
"The United States must change its threatening-based conduct," the Iranian president said. "If someone swung a bat at you to make you engage in dialogue, would you agree?" Ahmadinejad said that his country will negotiate with the US if it "Changed its attitude." (Roi Kais)
