Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has expressed his support for nations wishing to have justice and freedom of choice.

In an interview with the French news channel Euronews on Wednesday, Ahmadinejad said he regretted that some leaders, such as former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, had bad relations with their people.

He also defended his own country's human rights record, saying that what happened in Iran is different to what's going on in other countries. But he added that he rejects interference by outsiders in Middle East affairs.

Ahmadinejad said, "We think that nations have the right to freedom of choice and justice. But we think if others do not interfere in the Middle East, these nations will be able to solve their own problems. Many of the problems we witness today and also in the past, are the result of foreign interference. If there are problems, the roots can be found in historical relations."
