Ahmadinejad vows tough approach towards West

world Updated: Jun 27, 2009 19:27 IST

Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Saturday said his new government would be more decisive and tough in its policies towards the West, Islamic Students News Agency (ISNA) reported.

"Iran will make you feel regret, if you continue to interfere and behave rudely," Ahmadinejad said while speaking at the inauguration ceremony of a nationwide judicial conference in Tehran.

"This time the reply by the Iranian nation will be decisive and harsh," he said in reference to Western criticism of the election that saw him retain power as president for a second six-year term.

He attacked US President Barack Obama for meddling in Iran's domestic affairs and said Obama's interference has raised suspicion over his recent overtures to the Islamic country.

Obama and European states have urged the Iranian government to solve the post-election turmoil peacefully and avoid violence in suppressing protests against the alleged election fraud.

Accordign to reports, Iran is considering revising and possibly downgrading diplomatic ties with several European states, including Britain, France and Germany over their alleged interference in the June 12 election.
