Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton has appeared more appeasing vis-a-vis Iran than Republican nominee Donald Trump, publicly endorsing the controversial nuclear deal – but according to Iran's Parliament Speaker the two are the same.
Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani said on Sunday that Tehran doesn't see any difference between whether Clinton or Trump win the elections, reports the Iranian Fars News Agency.
"It doesn’t make so much difference for Iran since we have had confrontations with both the Republicans and Democrats in the past 37 years (since the Islamic Revolution – ed.)," Larijani said.
"Both the Democrats and the Republicans have negative records in dealing with Iran and it depends on how people can correctly analyze issues in the current conditions and how much wisdom they show in ruling their country."
The Iranian Speaker called to "reinvigorate Iran's might and power" in an "economy of resistance," according to the site, saying, "if we understand these elements well, then anyone that is elected as the US president will have not so much affect on us."
Not only has Clinton repeatedly defended the controversial nuclear deal struck with Iran last July, she also helped in starting negotiations during her term as US President Barack Obama's Secretary of State.
Trump for his part has harshly condemned the deal as paving a path to a nuclear arsenal for the leading state sponsor of terror.
The real estate mogul's son Eric Trump last Sunday revealed that his father largely launched his presidential campaign to defeat the nuclear deal, saying it was a "game-changer."
