TEHRAN, April 14 (UPI) -- Iran is U.S. President Barack Obama's only chance to achieve the change he seeks domestically and globally, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said.

Ahmadinejad said Obama can't achieve change in Iraq or Afghanistan because the situation is too complicated, and wondered what Obama could do in the Middle East to claim victory, the government-sponsored Islamic Republic News Agency reported Wednesday.

"What formula can he propose to make any development in Palestine that could be considered a victory for him and could strengthen his position in the U.S.?" Ahmadinejad asked during a televised interview Tuesday. "He can't do anything in Iraq or Afghanistan either because the situation is so complicated there that he can't create a tangible change there that could be considered a victory."

That means "Obama only has one way to tell the world that he has created change, and that is Iran," the Islamic republic's president said.

Ahmadinejad said he sent a letter to Obama, but did not reveal its contents, IRNA said.

During the interview, he also urged Obama to stop threatening Iran, saying, "The era that they assumed that they could damage Iran is over."
