TEHRAN, Oct. 7 (Mehr News Agency) – If President Barack Obama could really deliver on his promise of change there would be positive and meaningful impacts on ties between Iran and the United States, Expediency Council Chairman Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani said on Tuesday. In a meeting with Swiss Ambassador Livia Leu Agosti, whose country represents the U.S. interests section in Iran, Rafsanjani said Obama was elected president for his promise of change and many countries pinned their hopes on his promise to bring change to U.S. policy.
However, he said, “In practice one should say that nothing has really changed in U.S. policies.”
