Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad called on the U.S. and its allies Saturday to "apologize" to Iran for accusing it of seeking nuclear weapons, and said no amount of sanctions would deter his country from pursuing its uranium enrichment program. "If they want to continue with that path of sanctions, we will not be harmed," Ahmadinejad was quoted as saying Saturday during a television address. "They can issue resolutions for 100 years."
