BAKU, Azerbaijan, Nov. 18 (UPI) -- Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in Azerbaijan urged world powers to stop threatening his country if they want to make headway on nuclear talks.

"If they want to achieve positive results they should stop thinking as aggressors. There are those among them who think as aggressors, and they think they can achieve positive results by putting pressure on us and threatening us," Ahmadinejad said at a press conference in Baku, Azerbaijan, Thursday.

"They (world powers) should change the old methods, otherwise the results will be the same. No embargoes can change the Iranian people," Ahmadinejad said.

Ahmadinejad insisted the Iran is prepared to discuss its nuclear program but warned the West against coercion, al-Arabiya reported.

"They think that they will achieve something by putting pressure on Iran. But they will not ... They hope that a blockade of Iran will change the Iranian people. But the Iranian people will not be broken by sanctions," he said.

Ahmadinejad was in Azerbaijan for a summit of leaders from the five Caspian Sea states, the network said.
