Mahmous Ahmadinejad, president of Iran, opened the door for negotiations with the United States since he “does not want to see the dark age of Bush repeated.” He appeared to believe the Obama administration would be more conducive to genuine discussions and negotiation than the verbally abuse rule of the Bush clique. “The new US administration has announced that they want to produce change and pursue the course of dialogue, “he told cheering crowds in Tehran, “it is quite clear that real change must be fundamental and not tactical. It is clear the Iranian nation welcomes real changes.” He made clear his nation was ready for negotiations proved there was mutual respect.
Ahmadinejad indicated such discussions could discuss a range of topics from terrorism or the drug traffic or the elimination of atomic weapons. Obama has also indicated he wants to rethink what has separated the two nations and open new doors for discussion.
