Iran Leader Wants To Debate Obama
Iranian leader Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has offered to take on presidential candidates Barack Obama and John McCain in a debate.
The fiery president made the suggestion in an interview with CNN's Larry King.
In the pre-recorded piece he said he would be happy to discuss international affairs with both candidates in front of the world's media.
His offer came after he made a controversial speech to the United Nations General Assembly in New York.
During his address he declared: "The American empire is reaching the end of its road and its next rulers must limit their interference to their own borders."
He was greeted by empty seats in part of the Assembly as the US delegation walked out, leaving only a junior member of staff to take notes.
According to a transcript of the CNN interview, Ahmedinejad said he had no favourite in the race but hoped that whoever wins in November would bring about "some changes in policy".
