Javad Jahangirzadeh, a member of parliament’s presiding board, said the recent offer made by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad about direct negotiations between Iran and the United States have totally crushed Islamic Republic’s policy toward United States over the last 30 years.
In the sideline of Ahmadinejad’s travel to New York, he proposed Americans a direct negotiation with Iranians. Many local politicians and member of parliaments have criticized the President over his offer. However American politicians didn’t react to Ahmadinejad’s offer.
“We can criticize Ahmadinejad’s remarks in several ways. During the last 30 years, Islamic Republic denied to negotiate with the United States while they were looking to hold a direct negotiation with Iran. In these certain conditions, he (Ahmadinejad) came and asked the Americans to negotiate with Iran. Ahmadinejad has annoyed the main strategy of Islamic Republic.” Javad Jahangirzadeh said.
“The authorities of the United States also didn’t react to this offer because they know that Ahmadinejad will leave his post in the next months and he has not enough power to invite the United States to negotiate with Islamic Republic of Iran. According to constitution, determining the policies of Iran is out of power of president and only Supreme Leader can modify it.” Javad Jahangirzadeh, hardliner member of Majlis added.
