Iran “has some problem with its attitude” and needs to change its policies, “especially with regard to Israel,” says prominent Iranian journalist.

In a recent interview on the Chinese-owned CGTN Network, Iranian journalist Ghanbar Naderi said that Iran must change its policy towards its neighbors and that it should stop threatening to destroy Israel.

Naderi, a columnist for Iran’s Kayhan International, said the regime should “respect the sovereignty” of Israel, Saudi Arabia, and other countries in the region.

Naderi, who was speaking from Tehran, also criticized US President Trump’s attitude, saying that  the COVID-19 pandemic should have been seen as an opportunity for cooperation.
