Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is never shy to spy Western conspiracy against the Islamic Republic, and the leaked diplomatic cables, which showed some Arab leaders true feelings toward Iran, were no exception. From The New York Times:
Mr. Ahmadinejad said at a news conference on Monday that Iran’s relations with its neighbors would not be damaged by the reports.
“Regional countries are all friends with each other. Such mischief will have no impact on the relations of countries,” he said, according to Reuters.
“Some part of the American government produced these documents,” he said. “We don’t think this information was leaked. We think it was organized to be released on a regular basis and they are pursuing political goals.”
News reports quoted Mr. Ahmadinejad as calling the documents “worthless” and without “legal value.”
