Iran-France-President
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in an exclusive interview with France Channel 2 TV network said, " We are not worried about US military attack."

The president expounded on Iran's viewpoints and dismissed West's accusation on Iran's efforts to access nuclear weapon.

Ahmadinejad said, " Atomic weapons cannot bring victory. This is why Israel could not avoid defeat in Lebanon."

Responding to a question concerning Iran's worry about the US military attack, the president said, "We are not worried because of two reasons. First, the situation for doing it is not suitable in the region. Second, there are still wise people in the US who do not allow such a stupid behavior happen."

Ahmadinejad said he would present new proposals concerning Iran's nuclear program to the UN Security Council adding the US and UK stances on Iran's nuclear dossier in the Security Council is not legal.

He said Iran's enrichment of uranium is a legal issue, but the US and UK stances in the Security Council are not.

Ahmadinejad said the request by the UNSC permanent members plus Germany concerning suspension of uranium enrichment by Iran is illegal adding, "We are not after an atomic bomb because it is not useful and our religion does not allow us to have it."
