American-Iran Ties Will Never Depend on Elections in U.S.: Iranian MP
Azerbaijan, Tehran, 26 November / Trend , corr. D.Ibrahimova, A.Namdari/The ties between America and Iran will never depend on the results of elections in the United States, Fatima Ajerlu, the representative of the Conservative Party in the Iranian Parliament, said to Trend .
The ties between the both countries remind the relationa between 'wolf and lamb', and there is no hope that they will be improved in the future, Ajerlu said.
Bilateral relations may be improved if only the United States will change its policy towards the Islamic Republic. The local authorities in Iran, according to Ajerlu, will welcome such changes.
As for the solution of the Iranian nuclear issue, the United States 'needs to change views and rules, as well as refuse from the policy of double standards towards the countries, which are occupied with enrichment of uranium, Ajerlu added.
However, according to the former American Senator Bennett Johnston, to begin the talks between the U.S. an Iran, the Islamic Republic must suspend the development of its nuclear program.
"The suspension of nuclear program will be the first step taken to improve the ties between the countries," Johnston, the former senator in Louisiana State (1972-1996) said to Trend via a telephone.
"Iran is a key to stability in the Middle East," Johnston said.
According to Johnston, Iran is an important player in the region, and the U.S. will try to involve it in the solution of key problems in the Middle East.
"This will serve the interests of Iran and the U.S.," Johnston said.
