Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad congratulated the US president-elect Barack Obama on his success in the presidential elections and called for a fundamental shift in the US domestic and foreign policy, reported ISNA.
"You are expected to make a fast and clear response to the demands for a fundamental change in US domestic and foreign policy, which all people in the world as well as Americans want on top of your agenda," he told Obama.
"You know that opportunities bestowed upon people by the God are passing," he said.
"I hope that you prefer people's interests and justice to the rapacious demands of a selfish minority, make the best use of the chance and leave a good name," Ahmadinejad said.
The US nation with religious tendencies expect their government to do its best to serve them, reform the critical economic condition, restore their lost reputation and strengthen family foundations, the Iranian President said.
"Other nations also expect war-seeking policies, occupation, bullying and imposing discriminated policies on them, which has made the US hated in the eyes of many countries, be replaced with respect for human rights, justice and non-interference in countries' internal affairs," Ahmadinejad said.
"They also expect the U.S. intervention be limited to its own territory," he told the US president-elect.
"The great nation of Iran welcomes basic and fair changes in U.S. policies and behaviors, especially in the region."
"If you take steps towards doing what great prophets have said, you will be supported by God and heavy damages in the past will be made up for partially," he said.
He also wished prosperity, welfare and honor for all nations of the world and said" I hope all officials and authorities on power would best use chances to serve their people, eradicate cruelty and carry out divine orders.
