Iranian leader demands US apology

_45420188_ahmadinejad_afp2261The US “stood against the Iranian people in the past 60 years”, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said during an address in the western region of Khermenshah.

“Those who speak of change must apologise to the Iranian people and try to repair their past crimes,” he said.

The US president has offered to extend a hand if Iran “unclenched its fist”.

President Barack Obama discussed the possibility of a softening of US policy towards Iran in an interview recorded with a Saudi-owned Arabic TV network on Monday.

Mr Ahmadinejad will, as expected, stand for re-election in June, close aide Aliakbar Javanfekr told Reuters news agency on Wednesday.

Strong tirade

America’s crimes against Iran, the Iranian leader said in his televised speech, included support for the Iranian coup of 1953 and backing for Saddam Hussein in the Iran-Iraq war of the 1980s.

God willing, he [George W Bush] has gone to hell 

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad

The Iranian president welcomed the possibility of US change, but said it should be “fundamental and effective” rather than just a change of tactics.

The remarks are the first Iranian comment on the US since Mr Obama took office eight days ago.
