Ahmadinejad: Iran waiting for changes in US policy

Associated Press

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) - President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says Iran is waiting to see "real changes" in U.S. foreign policy.

Speaking in an interview aired on state television Tuesday night, Ahmadinejad warned that ties between Tehran and Washington won't improve if fundamental changes do not occur in U.S. policies.

The comments Tuesday echo similar statements made recently by Ahmadinejad.

Last week, he said Iran is ready for talks with the U.S. - but only if there is mutual respect.

Officials have said that means the U.S. has to stop accusing Iran of supporting terrorism and seeking to build nuclear weapons.

President Barack Obama has pledged to rethink Washington's relationship with Tehran.
