Ahmadinejad: Another resolution closes way to Iran-US ties for ever

IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

New York, May 5, IRNA – President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in an interview with US daily “ Boston Globe” on Tuesday stressed that issuance of another resolution in the UN Security Council against Iran is equal to closure of Iran-US ties for ever.

President Ahmadinejad also said that Iran is not worried about it.

He said the second meaning of approving a new resolution against Iran would be that no changes had occurred in the USA and it would be the end of President Barack Obama's era.

He added that end of Obama’s era means the end of US historic opportunity to recover its reputation in the world.

Answering a question concerning Israel' threat against Iran, Ahmadinejad said that nobody can attack Iran.

"You do not know Iran. Iran is a big country and in our military doctrine, the Zionist regime has no position."

President Ahmadinejad continued that President Obama came to power with the motto of change and with the aim of recovering US reputation in the world, but no changes have occured in significant issues; the basic issues should change. Issues which can alter US reputation in the world are Palestine, Iraq, Afghanistan as well as Washington plans for confronting Iran.

He said if President Obama could change ties with Iran, other issues would be improved too, but there are people inside the US and also a number of UN Security Council members who are pushing Obama toward taking a harsh decision against Iran.

Concerning relations between USA and Iran, he said that in case of fair conditions with respect for us, we will be for recovering relations.

"We sent them good indications for recovering ties, but the response was not appropriate."

About nuclear fuel swap, Ahmadinejad said that for reaching an agreement, they can prepare 50 percent of the needed fuel and we deliver 50 percent of low enriched fuel to the IAEA and then we are all ready for exchange of the total amount.

President Ahmadinejad said Iran needs 100 kilograms of 20 percent enriched fuel and we are producing this amount now, but for confidence building, we are ready to do this swap.
