Ahmadinejad: Prove nuclear claims

Tehran - Iran's president says the West needs to prove its claims that Tehran seeks to build nuclear weapons and that it's not up to his country to disprove the allegations.

Ahmadinejad says Iran is not pursuing nuclear weapons and that it's impossible to prove something that doesn't exist. His speech Wednesday to a group of supporters near Tehran was broadcast on state TV.
