The Leader of the Islamic Revolution says the US must apologize for its wrongdoings to the Iranian nation if it seeks closer Tehran ties.

Tehran and Washington severed diplomatic ties in 1979.

“The dispute [with America] goes beyond differences of opinion on a few political issues,” said Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei Wednesday.

Speaking six days before the US presidential election, the Leader said Iranian ‘hatred’ toward the White House is the result of US ‘plots against the Iranian people over the past 50 years’.

Iran holds the United States responsible for a CIA-launched coup in 1953 against the then democratically elected prime minister, Mohammad Mosaddeq.

The coup marked the first successful CIA overthrow of a foreign government in history, in which the US restated its close ally Mohammad-Reza Pahlavi, the Shah, in Iran.

US Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama has pledged to directly and diplomatically engage Iran should he take office; raising the prospect of closer Tehran-Washington relations.

According to Senator Obama, the means of diplomacy will only be used in talks over Iran’s nuclear program.

In his Wednesday address before Iranian scholars and students, Ayatollah Khamenei said it is disappointing that US politicians have never expressed regret over their anti-Iran actions.

“Instead, they continue to adopt the same arrogant attitude toward Iranians,” the Leader added.
