Barack Obama has sent a message to Iranians in Iran and around the world celebrating Norooz and urged Iran to take “immediate and meaningful steps” to convince the international community of the peaceful nature of its nuclear activities.
U.S. senator John McCain accused Barack Obama’s administration of leaking the report of Obama’s approval of cyber-attacks against Iran in a bid for pre-election glory.
The U.S. president says world powers are looking for a resolution to the nuclear disputes with Iran that respects its sovereignty and its rights as well as its responsibilities.
Parliamenteary Speaker Ali Larijani says U.S. President Barack Obama’s New Year’s message to Iranians was “disappointing and ridiculous.”
Ayatollah Khamenei, Iran’s supreme leader attacked US policies in the region and countered Obama’s Norooz message to Iranian people saying “Death to America!” is what Iranians always chant in their demonstrations.
