Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said today that his country is "ready for a dialogue [with the US] and a resolution of problems".
Speaking through an interpreter at a news conference in New York, he said: "We have never had any problems with the people of the United States."
He added that Iran was "capable of avoiding and neutralizing" any effort to sabotage its nuclear facilities.
Earlier this year, Iran resumed talks with the P5+1 group of world powers, which includes the US, about its secretive nuclear programme.
