Brigadier General Hassan Salami, IRGC Acting Commander, commented on Chuck Hagel’s candidacy for the post of the US Secretary of Defense and said that current US policy-makers have always made appealing claims. Tehran, however, has never attributed any value to those claims. “Iran will never trust US officials, because in spite of their individual characteristics, US officials work within a system known as imperialism that helps safeguard interests of the hegemonic powers.” He stressed that Iran would have no trust in what US officials have said or would say unless there is a practical change in their acts. Salami added that change of individuals would not necessarily mean the change of US strategy and policies.
