Tehran, Jan 30, 2011 – President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Sunday that the structure of the Iranian Foreign Ministry needed fundamental changes in order to meet the historical mission of the nation, according to IRNA.
The president made the remark this morning while he was in Majlis to introduce Ali-Akbar Salehi, his nominee for the post of Foreign Minister.
He said Iran was presently in need of powerful, influential, systematic and principled foreign policy.
Saying that much of the diplomatic literature now used in the world was manufactured by the hegemonic powers, Ahmadinejad stressed that such a literature should be totally eliminated.
President Ahmadinejad also highlighted the fact that foreign policy has been the biggest agenda of the Islamic Revolution in the country.
He further focused on the characteristics of Salehi as his proposed foreign minister and made points about the upcoming ten-day celebrations to mark the 32nd victory anniversary of the Islamic Revolution in Iran.
