Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi also deemed false any pending negotiations at this point, following Obama's re-election victory. While judiciary chief Larijani is closely tied to Ayatollah Khamenei, Foreign Minister Ali Salehi is a spokesman for President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Salehi was on handin late September, when the Iranian president spoke to the UN General Assembly. At that time, he met with the representatives of the Syria quartet (Iran, Egypt, Turkey and Saudi Arabia) who are working to end the civil war in Syria.
These ongoing issues with Iran, Syria, the Israeli West Bank, and most recently with Pakistan, are among the urgent matters that newly re-elected President Obama will have to confront.
