Ahmadinejad Calls for Western Navies to Leave Gulf

NEW YORK - Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Sept. 23 called on NATO naval forces to withdraw from the Persian Gulf, calling them a threat to security.
Ahmadinejad was asked about the potential for conflict in the Gulf at the final press conference of his trip to New York for the annual U.N. General Assembly.
"Any tool that can prevent clashes and potential conflict will be welcome.
And I don't think there is any need for confrontation," he said.
