US President-elect Barack Obama said Friday that Iran’s pursuit of nuclear weapons was “unacceptable” and the Islamic Republic must stop supporting “terrorist organizations.”
Obama, speaking at his first press conference since winning Tuesday’s presidential election, also confirmed he had been sent a letter from Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad following his victory.
“I am aware that the letter was sent,” he said. “I will be reviewing the letter from President Ahmadinejad and we will respond appropriately.”
