Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has called for a new world order based on new ideas, saying the era of tyranny has come to a dead-end.
In an exclusive interview with Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB), Ahmadinejad noted that it is time to propose new ideologies for running the world.
He said the time of tyrannical regimes is over and arrogant powers can no longer proceed with business as usual since their capitalism-based economies are collapsing.
“Tyrannical regimes will not last forever and they will reach their end sooner or later,” Ahmadinejad stated.
The president said people across the globe are fed up with the slogans of the arrogant powers.
He cited the widespread protests in countries like Iraq and Afghanistan, where he believes the major powers’ policies are failing.
“Any civilization or empire that wants to impose its ideas on others through the use of force will reach its end in the near future,” he said.
Iran can present new ideas and views, which the world will need in the future, he added.
The Iranian president stated that Israel’s defeat in its Gaza offensive was the beginning of a new order in the world. “Now they are in disarray and new developments are unfolding.”
Israel’s 23-day offensive against Gaza, which ended on January 18, was condemned by the international community and caused divisions among major Israeli political parties.
