Iran leader plays down war talk
For Mohmoud Ahmadinejad the Iranian President, the treat by the US and Israel about a possible war is music to his ears, let's just hope he is right because no body likes innocent Iranians dying because of conflict between three different leaders.
"I assure you... there won't be any war in the future," he said in Malaysia.
Earlier, an aide to Iran's supreme leader said Tehran would strike Israel or the US navy in the Gulf if it was attacked over its nuclear programme.
The comments come amid reports of possible Israeli or US plans to strike Iran's nuclear facilities.
Tehran denies Western claims that it is seeking to build a nuclear weapon.
It has repeatedly rejected demands to halt enriching uranium, which can be used as fuel for power plants - and as material for weapons if refined to a greater degree.
The European Union imposed new sanctions on Iran in June.
But it has offered a package of incentives to persuade Iran to suspend uranium enrichment.
Iran has said it is prepared to negotiate with major world powers, but insisted the talks had to address Iran's nuclear rights.
