Tehran, Iran (AP) Iran's president says he sees “common ground” with the west over his country's disputed nuclear program, and “new behavior” from the United States that could merit a positive response.

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad tells NBC his country doesn't “believe in a nuclear bomb,” which, in his words, “belong to the 20th century.”

The state department is downplaying the comments, with a spokesman saying the U.S. is looking for “deeds, not words.”

Iran has until Saturday to respond to a package of incentives offered by six world powers in exchange for an agreement by Tehran to curb uranium enrichment. Otherwise more sanctions could be imposed. Ahmadinejad has offered no hint as to what the answer will
be.
