LONDON, August 29 (IranMania) - Iran's Foreign Ministry said Sunday it was waiting to see what policy the United States would adopt towards the Islamic republic after the presidential election in November so it can 'react accordingly', AFP reported.
'We have to see what policies the United States adopts towards Iran after the elections, and we will react accordingly,' Foreign Ministry spokesman Hamid Reza Asefi told reporters.
'It is natural that if the United States changes its policies, the Islamic republic will adjust its own.'Iran and the United States cut off diplomatic relations in 1980. In January last year, US President George W. Bush lumped the Islamic republic in an 'axis of evil' due to its alleged support of terrorism and quest for weapons of destruction.
But Iranian officials have so far been cautious in voicing their preference ahead of the race between Bush and his Democratic challenger, John Kerry.
When asked to comment Saturday, President Mohammad Khatami replied only that US policy towards Iran 'never stops getting worse'.
'We hope the Americans will prevent the adventurism of their leaders. The problem is not changing the men, but changing the policies,' he said.
