Obama blind to Iran’s realities: Afkham

TEHRAN, Aug. 13(MNA) – Iranian FM spokeswoman said Obama’s recent remarks are due to his neglect of Iran’s realities.

Iranian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Marzieh Afkham reacted to the US President Obama’s recent remarks made in an interview with Mic Network Inc.

Commenting on President Obama's statements about the need for change in policies undertaken by Iran, Marzieh Afkham told the reporters, “what needs change and development is policy and the system of the US administration, not Iran’s, as well as that country's approach towards the independent states.”

Afkham noted that the US president has been blind to the genuine trends and realities of the nearly past 40 years of the Iranian society, and said, “The prowess and the status of Iran is not only based on Iranian and Islamic ancient culture and civilization, but also the standing up of the Iranian nation against dominance-seeking, threat and principled support for the oppressed nations are among important reason for it.”

The Iranian spokeswoman rejected Iran's isolation, and said, “in our view and also in view of many free world nations, it is the Zionist regime and its supporters who have been isolated and abandoned in the international community.”

American Mic Network Inc. released on Tuesday an interview with the US President Barak Obama in which Obama claimed, “there's going to have to be a transition inside of Iran, even if gradual, in which there's a recognition that chanting "death to America" or denying the Holocaust among its leaders or threatening Israel with destruction or, you know, providing arms to Hezbollah, which is on the terrorist list — that those things make Iran a pariah in the eyes of a large part of the world.”
