Iranian president threatens retaliation to any U.S. strike, confirms talks with U.S.

The Iranian president said Sunday Iran will retaliate if the U.S. strikes the country militarily.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad also said Iran had agreed for the benefit of the Iraqi people to meet with the U.S. in Baghdad to discuss security in Iraq.

"They (the U.S.) cannot strike Iran," he said at a press conference during a 2-day visit to the UAE. "The Iranian people can protect themselves and retaliate."
