Iran urges change in US int’l approach


Tehran : Government spokesman Gholam-Hossein Elham said here Wednesday that the US president-elect Barack Obama should strive to rebuild the international image of the United States and remove the world’s lack of confidence in Washington.

Obama won the 2008 US presidential election, defeating John McCain, and will be sworn in as the first African-American to hold the nation’s highest office.

He expressed hope that Obama would make fundamental changes in the US approach regarding international issues.

Elham also called on Obama to respect rights of nations and put an end to aggression of world countries.

He added that massive turnout of Americans in the election showed that policies of the US President George W Bush had created hatred both inside and outside the country.

It also indicated that the American people were seriously determined to change the current situation, Elham said.

Imposing huge cost of wars on the Americans, which led to critical economic situation in the country, was the achievement of Bush administration for the nation, the spokesman added.
