Tehran hopes France’s “positive” position against Iran after Sarkozy
Azerbaijan, Baku, May 7 /Trend, D.Khatinoglu/
Iranian foreign ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast says Iran hopes that France would review and reconcile its position against Iran in the future.
"The defeat of Nicolas Sarkozy in the presidential elections shows the French government's wrong policy. Iran now hopes that the Francois Hollande administration would take a positive position in its foreign policy against Iran," he said.
Francois Hollande was set to become France's first Socialist president in over 20 years after routing the centre-right incumbent, Nicolas Sarkozy in a bitter contest with far reaching implications for Europe and the euro.
According to voting estimates based on a partial vote count from the TNS Sofres Institute, Hollande won with 52 per cent to Sarkozy's 48 per cent.
Mehmanparast said that Hollande should compensate its predecessor's mistakes.
He hoped for a new page on Iran, France relations after the Sarkozy administration.
