Iran’s parliament speaker Ali Larijani slammed US president-elect Barack Obama on Saturday for saying Tehran’s pursuit of nuclear weapons was “unacceptable,” the official IRNA news agency reported.
“This signifies a pursuit of the same erroneous policy as in the past,” Larijani said when asked about Obama’s comment on Friday.

“If the United States wants to change its standing in the region it should send good signals,” he said.

“Obama understands that change does not only mean a change of colour and superficial differences, change must also have a strategic basis,” the agency quoted Larijani as saying.

Obama told his first news conference since winning the US presidential election on Tuesday that Iran’s pursuit of nuclear weapons was unacceptable and also that he would “respond appropriately” to a congratulatory letter from President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Obama added “Iran’s support of terrorist organisations, I think, is something that has to cease.”

IRNA also quoted Larijani as saying Iran’s leaders had chosen to pursue the country’s nuclear programme “having calculated the risks” and was well aware that they would come under international pressure.
