Iran’s chief of Joint Armed Forces says US President Barack Obama is more of a “realist” than his predecessor, George W. Bush, in handling the country’s nuclear case. “Iran is only seeking to develop a peaceful nuclear program, to produce energy,” Major General Hassan Firouzabadi said Wednesday. “And it seems that Mr. Obama has a more realist view of things.” “The two messages sent by him over the past six months could be a sign of this,” he added.
In March, Obama sent a letter to the Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, in a historic direct appeal to the leadership of White House’s 30-year arch-rival. Following Ayatollah Khamenei’s response to Obama, the US president sent a new conciliatory message to Iran, details of which have not been revealed by Washington or Tehran.
