Ahmadinejad Warns West Over Vienna Meeting Failure

Iranian President Mahmud Ahmadinejad
TEHRAN (Reuters) -- Iranian President Mahmud Ahmadinejad said on October 11 a meeting with world powers on October 19 in Vienna over the country's disputed nuclear program was a test for further "fruitful" cooperation, state television reported.

"The October 19 meeting is a test for fruitful cooperation [with the West] in the future," Ahmadinejad told state television.

"Failure of the meeting and imposing sanctions on Iran would hurt the West more than Iran."
