Ahmadinejad Calls for New World Order

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad had some harsh words for Western powers in a new exclusive interview with the Associated Press Tuesday. In response to Obama’s speech at the U.N. General Assembly, the controversial leader said that American “bullying” internationally must end. "God willing, a new order will come together and we'll do away with everything that distances us," he added. Ahmadinejad, who was in New York for the U.N. General Assembly, dismissed concerns that Iran is trying to build nuclear weapons and said Iran is one of “10 or 11 countries in the Middle East and elsewhere” that’s part of a new contact group working to end the conflict in Syria. Ahmadinejad says the new group plans to meet in New York to discuss the crisis “very soon.”
