Ali Larijani

La lune de miel entre l’Iran et Barack Obama semble avoir pris fin abruptement. Ali Larijani, président du parlement iranien, réagissant aux déclarations de Barack Obama qui a promis, la semaine dernière, d’utiliser la stratégie de la « carotte et du bâton » contre l’Iran:

« The new US president has said he wants to pressure Iran since it seeks to produce atomic weapons and because it supports the terrorists like Hamas and Hizbollah. We are proud of supporting Hizbollah since they are defending their homeland and you are wrong in calling them terrorists.

These comments resemble those of old American cowboys. If you have something to say about Iran’s nuclear issue, just say so. Why wave a stick. »
