Mahmoud Ahmadinejad US – CWEB.com
Today former President of #Iran Mahmoud #Ahmadinejad, who recently surprised everyone by joining the presidential race, has given an interview in which he called Iran a “powerful country” that the “US administration cannot hurt” and voiced support for the #nuclear #deal deal struck between Iran and global powers in 2015.
The controversial former president made the remarks to The Associated Press on Saturday, three days after he stunned Iranians by registering to run for president again.
His surprise candidacy must still be approved by authorities but has already upended a race that was widely expected to be won by incumbent moderate Hassan Rouhani.
Ahmadinejad also voiced reluctant support for Iran’s 2015 nuclear deal with world powers, which saw Iran accept curbs on its nuclear program in exchange for relief from crippling international sanctions.
