Ahmadinejad told a news conference in Tehran: “I invited (last year) the (current) US president to a debate at the United Nations General Assembly in New York, but he rejected.”
“Now that his term is coming to an end, I am ready to have this debate with one of the candidates (who wins the presidential race),” he added.
Two offers by Ahmadinejad for debate with Bush were rejected and a letter by the Iranian president to his US counterpart remained unanswered.
