The US president and his Iranian counterpart have clashed over Tehran’s nuclear ambitions at the United Nations.George Bush, the US president, in his address to the UN General Assembly on Tuesday, accused Iran's rulers of squandering their nation's wealth to fund terrorists and nuclear arms research.

But only hours later, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the Iranian president, hit back from the same rostrum, accusing Washington and its allies of abusing the 15-nation UN Security Council to deny Iran the right to peaceful nuclear power that Western states had.
