Ahmadinejad: "Obama Has Failed to Bring Change"
Iranian regime President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told reporters today that Barack Obama has failed to bring change to Washington’s policies.
Fars News reported:
The approval of the fourth round of sanctions against Iran at the UN Security Council indicated the failure of US President Barack Obama in bringing a change to Washington’s policies, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said.
“Mr. Obama took the power with the slogan of change but the [recent] resolution … means that nothing will happen. [It] is in fact an indication of Obama’s failure to bring change,” Ahmadinejad said.
With the new resolution passed at the UNSC, President Obama has followed in former US president George W. Bush’s footsteps, President Ahmadinejad said, adding that such policy was doomed to failure.
The UNSC adopted new sanctions against the Islamic Republic last month. The sanctions came after US’s hard lobbying for new punitive measures against Tehran over its nuclear work.
The Iranian chief executive blamed Washington for the ratification of the recent sanctions, saying other nations were pushed by the US to approve the UN resolution.
“We consider the United States as responsible for the resolution, because the Security Council is under US influence,” President Ahmadinejad said in an interview with Japan’s Kyodo news agency.
