Tehran, Nov 27, IRNA -- ... Responding to a question about west new sanctions against Iran, the president said that when a nation is seeking progress and development, they should try to achieve their goals by overcoming problems and difficulties.

Referring to the west and arrogant powers' plans in direction of creating obstacles in the way of Iran's economic development, Ahmadinejad said they want to bankrupt Iranian producers, so that they can export their own goods to Iran.

He added that the US and its allies have other pretexts and plans to confront Iran, other than nuclear issue, but if they could be friend with Iranians, it would be in their own benefit.

The president stressed that experience shows any country that has become a friend of Iranians, has taken benefit.

Ahmadinejad said that the west viewpoint against Iran comes from their poor analysis of reality and added that this wrong analysis has caused limitations for them.

President Ahmadinejad said that cooperation is better than confrontation adding that west should know that Iranians have a long history and civilization.

Referring to Iran's cooperation for negotiation with Group 5+1 to remove problems concerning Iran nuclear issues, Ahmadinejad said, 'We have already shown that we are ready for dialogue, while they make it hard for themselves by taking measures against Iran.'

He underlined that talks should be without preconditions adding that in negotiations the two sides should reach a common understanding, but they say that the outcome of the talks is clear.

The president stressed that dialogue with Iran should be upon justice and respect and this is Iran's precondition for talks.
