Iranian Regime: Obama’s Secret Letter a Sign of US Failure
Nice work, Barack.
The Iranian regime Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said the recent letter by Barack Obama to Iranian leadership was a sign of US failure in the region.
Iran Press TV reported:
Iran Foreign Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast confirmed on January 15 that Obama had sent a message to Iran via three different channels, including US Ambassador to the UN Susan Rice, Swiss Ambassador to Tehran Livia Leu Agosti, and Iraqi President Jalal Talabani.
Mohammad Karim Abedi said on Thursday that after carrying out a variety of plots against Iran, the US has owned up to its failure in dealing with the Iranian nation.
Referring to the fact that Obama had refrained from resorting to threats in his message, the member of Iran Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Committee added that all questions posed in the letter by Obama have been already answered by the Leader.
Abedi said although the Iranian nation, as the Leader has repeatedly said, supports peace and poses no threat to other countries, Obama must know that if any country decides to invade the Islamic Republic, Tehran will give a crushing response to invaders and all their interests across the world.
Abedi added that Iran has no current plan to close the Strait of Hormuz, but if sanctions are imposed against the country’s oil, Tehran is entitled to respond in kind.
The Strait of Hormuz is a narrow waterway which connects the Persian Gulf on the west to the Sea of Oman.
Statistically, the waterway is one of the world’s most important shipping lanes, with a daily flow of about 15 million barrels of oil.
The Iranian regime released the contents of the letter yesterday. In the letter Obama said the US would not take hostile action against Iran.
