A top Iranian official says the US president-elect is unlikely to bring fundamental change to Washington’s ‘arrogant’, broken policies.

Senator Barack Obama based his presidential campaign on the slogan of ‘change’, pledging to fix the ailing US economy and restore America’s damaged reputation in the world.

Tehran’s interim Friday prayers leader Ayatollah Seyyed Ahmad Khatami, however, believes the ‘change’ slogan was dictated by America’s current standing in the international arena.

“Under the presidency of George W. Bush, the US has been driven into an economic quagmire… The ‘war on terror’ now advocates reconciliation with the Taliban because the American war machine has been broken to pieces,” said Ayatollah Khatami, a member of Iran’s Assembly of Experts.


“The promise of change did not originate a political party, it was the watchword (in Washington),” the Iranian cleric added.

In regards to US-Iran relations, Khatami said as long as an ‘arrogant’ attitude is held toward Iran, there will be no reconciliation between the two governments.

Washington severed ties with Tehran in the aftermath of the US embassy takeover in Iran, shortly after the victory of the Islamic Revolution in 1979.
