Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says that a new world order needs to emerge, away from American "bullying" and domination.

Ahmadinejad spoke to The Associated Press Tuesday in a wide-ranging interview on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly -- his last as president of Iran.

He also discussed solutions for Syria, dismissed the question of Iran's nuclear ambition and claimed that despite Western sanctions his country is better off than it was when he took office in 2005.

Ahmadinejad tells the AP, "God willing, a new order will come together and we'll do away with everything that distances us."

He says, "bullying" and "occupation" must come to an end.
