Heshmatollah Falahatpisheh said in interview with Zendegi, regarding Ahmadinejad’s term as President "In his first administration the expediency principle was damaged by an array of his statements that were out of line with major policies in foreign relations.”
"Toward the end of his term also the foreign policy honor principle was challenged with the introduction of requests for talks with the US,” he continued.
Falahatpisheh believed that as the Ahmadinejad administration started, issues such as the Holocaust, eradication of Israel, and the deconstruction of the world order, resembling rather idealistic mottos and in contrast with realities, provided parties with opportunities to tap into the situation.
He believed that Ahmadinejad grew extremist for unknown reasons to mention issues like Holocaust which was in disagreement with the historical experience of Iran.
"It was a questionable act by Ahmadinejad to mention the Holocaust and it made the Israeli happier than anyone else, since they were given a pretext,” he stated.
