NEW YORK (AP) -- Iran's president says his country will not accept Western proposals to abandon its program to create nuclear fuel and take enriched uranium from outside sources.
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Iran could not guarantee that other nations would keep promises to supply Iran's planned reactors. He also told a gathering of journalists Thursday that he does not believe the United States will launch a military attack over Iran's nuclear program.
Washington and allies fear Iran seeks nuclear weapons, but Tehran insists it only wants energy-producing reactors. Ahmadinejad is in New York for the U.N. General Assembly.
