Please read the entire speech in English if you can. As I said before, Iran is taking a far more pragmatic approach to foreign policy. Unfortunately, the U.S. is doing quite the opposite. It seems that Iranians know they should not do anything stupid, so they’re getting Ahmadinejad to shut up, and getting smart:
It is a good idea to realize Iran form the western Iranologist perspective. Professor Fragner, the influential Austrian Iranologist said about Iran: “If we ask Germans how powerful Germany is, they will say the power of Germany is to the extend that German tanks can go. If you ask French how powerful is France they will say it is to the extend that their guns can fire and if you ask the Arabs that how powerful you are they will say to the extend that our swords can kill. But it is different about Iranians. Iranians never call themselves as Iran Empire or terms like these. They always talk about Iran’s sphere of power. Sphere of power means to the extend that minds and thoughts can work.“
It is what a western Iranologist say. Iran believes in rationality and constructive interaction in International Relations but never ignores its independence.
