US-Iran ties can change: Nejad
TEHERAN Iranian Presi-dent Mahmoud Ahmadi-nejad late on Tuesday said Washington’s relations with Teheran and the region can change if there is an effective policy shift by the United States.

In an interview with state-run television, Ahmadinejad once again called upon Washington’s new administration of President Barack Obama to implement changes that could make a “real” difference in the region.

“If they accept the rights of the Palestinians, the Afghans ... if there is a real change, relations can change,” Ahmadinejad said.

“We are waiting to see the change. A lot of people are awaiting the change and if they (the United States) do change the relationship will change itself.”

However, Ahmadinejad also said his country’s controversial nuclear programme which the west suspects is aimed at making atomic weapons is a “closed” chapter.

“If anybody wants to talk of the nuclear issue, they would be hurting themselves,” he said in the television interview.

But Washington and Teheran have been showing tentative policy shifts after Obama earlier this month said his administration would be ready in coming months to hold a “face-to-face” talk with Teheran.
