Iran to File Complaint over Obama's Threatening Remarks

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehman-Parast announced here on Sunday that Tehran plans to lodge a formal complaint with the United Nations against the threatening remarks recently uttered by US President Barack Obama against Iran.

"We will submit our formal complaint against this kind of threats to the United Nations," Mehman-Parast said in an interview with FNA.

The spokesman described Obama's remarks "a threat to global security", and stated, "Such remarks prove that the countries which possess nuclear arms are the greatest threat to the global security."

Mehman-Parast further pointed to the power of the Iranian Armed Forces, and said, "Our military and law enforcement forces enjoy the necessary means and equipments to defend the country and deter attacks by other states and they are defending the country's territorial integrity mightily and powerfully."

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Wednesday lashed out at Obama for his recent remarks on Washington's new nuclear strategy, saying Obama's comments indicated his lack of experience.

The United States pledged never to use nuclear weapons against the states that comply with the Non-Proliferation Treaties (NPT) as part of a much-anticipated review of nuclear arms strategy released Tuesday.

But the new pledge leaves open a nuclear strike against countries that have signed on to a global NPT but stand accused of violating its terms.

Obama, in an interview with The New York Times, said outright that the loophole would apply to "outliers like Iran and North Korea" that the US believes are developing nuclear weapons.

In response, President Ahmadinejad said that American leaders still act like cowboys and like heroes in Western movies, "Whenever there is a problem, they take out their guns."
