Iran against enmity with US, but twist in ties not imminent: Rohani

TEHRAN, Feb. 16 (ISNA)-Supreme Leader's representative at Supreme National Security Council said Iran does not want to continue enmity and conflict with the US but ruled out immediate twist in their frozen ties.

There is not much optimism that Tehran and Washington would come up with one single conclusion in all discords in between, said Expediency Council Strategic Research Center Director Hassan Rohani interviewed by Ashna radio station.

"Our conflicts with the US are too complicated to be solved in a couple of months or years," he noted.

Meanwhile regarding US President Barack Obama remarks over dialogue with Iran he asserted "yet, they (US officials) do not know how the changes would be. Obama administration has recently taken office... and they need some months for deliberations to come to a conclusion. I believe their word is currently just a slogan and nothing more."

Iran has not yet faced any positive and extraordinary move in practice by Obama administration for example regarding the Middle East or Palestine, he added.

Or for example Vice President Joseph Biden in Munich conference says Iran has two options, whether it forgo its nuclear program and accepts the incentives or it continues and faces more sanctions and isolation, he noted, "that means the US fundamental policy has not yet changed but apparently they say their policy is to change and they are ready for negotiation without preconditions."

"Of course if the US is really ready for change of stances and policies towards Iran, the response inside Iran may also be change," he noted as saying he was commenting on the issue as a citizen and the decision is up to high-ranking officials.

"We don't want the enmity and conflict with the US to go on.., but whether at the end of this policy for decreasing antagonism we would reach an interaction point I believe it's too soon to say and it is hard to judge in this regard."
