TEHRAN, Nov. 12 (Mehr News Agency) - The Islamic republic of Iran will regulate its future strategy based on "positive changes" in the U.S. foreign policy, a senior lawmaker stated on Sunday.
"So far, the U.S. behavior toward Iran has been unfriendly and sometimes hostile," Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Committee Chairman Alaedin Borujerdi told the Mehr News Agency on the sidelines of the general meeting of the Association of Asian Parliaments for Peace (AAPP).
He cited the neoconservatives' tough and illogical position toward Iran's nuclear issue and attempts to approve a strongly-worded resolution against Tehran among those hostile policies.
"Now that Democrats have taken control of the Senate and the House of Representatives, we should wait to see their serious influence on George Bush's policies," the lawmaker stated.
He advised the Democrats to "use the opportunity properly."
The former diplomat said that since the Democrats have largely opposed 'Bush's warmongering policies' it is expected that there will be a change in U.S. foreign policy.
As the campaign for the U.S. presidency officially kicks off next year, the Democrats will lose the opportunity if they ignore their campaign promises, he noted.
