We are ready to sit face to face with Mr.Barack Obama, but of course free and before the world media, and put the world issues on the table and see whose solutions are better."

The Iranian president has previously reiterated his readiness for public debates on international issues with Obama. Ahmadinejad also slammed Western powers for the sanctions they imposed against Iran.
