Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani on Monday strongly criticized US President Barack Obama for his unmet pledges, and described the US administration as “an administration of lies”.
Addressing a conference in Iran’s northern city of Chalous, Larijani questioned Washington’s honesty in making pledges to the worldwide Muslim community, specially during Obama’s speech to Muslims last year.
On June 4, 2009, Obama delivered a speech in Cairo, Egypt, calling for a “new beginning” to relations between America and the Muslim world and seeking to emphasize the common ground and shared values between the two.
The Iranian parliament speaker reminded current developments in the occupied Palestinian territories, further expansion of Jewish settlements, Israelis’ mistreatment of the Palestinians and Zionists’ attacks on mosques, and asked, “Mr. Obama, how much effort did you make to restore the rights of the Palestinian people?”
“Obama’s administration is an administration of lie,” he continued.
Elsewhere, Larijani slated Washington for repeating the same mistakes and wrong attitudes of the past in approaching Iran’s nuclear program and its ignorance and disrespect for Tehran’s emphasis on the peaceful nature of its nuclear activities.
Larijani further recalled the United States’ approach towards terrorism, and noted, “The same case is true with regard to (the US approach towards) the issue of terrorism, they appear to be condemning terrorism but support terrorism behind the scene.”
“In the confessions made by (Abdolmalek) Rigi (the ringleader of the Jundollah terrorist group), it came to be known that he was in connection with the NATO and the US and that they supported this terrorist group,” Larijani noted.
