TEHRAN (Reuters/AFP) - Newly re-elected President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Thursday his next government would bring down the global arrogance, signalling a tougher approach by Tehran towards the West after last months disputed election. Ahmadinejad, in his first provincial trip after the June 12 presidential vote, said Irans enemies had tried to interfere and foment aggression in the country, referring to mass opposition protests against the official election result. The president said the Islamic Republic wanted logic and negotiations but that Western powers had insulted the Iranian nation and should apologise. Iranian leaders often refer to the US and its allies as the global arrogance. As soon as the new government is established, with power and authority, ten times more than before, it will enter the global scene and will bring down the global arrogance, he told a big crowd in the northeastern city of Mashhad. They should wait as a new wave of revolutionary thinking ... from the Iranian nation is on the way and we will not allow the arrogant (powers) to even have one night of good sleep, Ahmadinejad said, according to state broadcaster IRIB. Opposition leader Mirhossein Mousavi, Ahmadinejads main challenger in the election, says it was rigged in the incumbents favour. The authorities reject charges of vote fraud. In this recent election the enemy tried to bring the battlefront to the interior of this country, Ahmadinejad said. But I have told the enemies ... that this nation ... will strike you in the face so hard you will lose your way home, he said in comments translated by English-language Press TV. He also voiced continued defiance in a row over Irans disputed nuclear ambitions, saying major powers will not be able to take away the smallest amount of Irans rights. Iran says its nuclear programme is for peaceful power purposes. Western countries suspect it is aimed at making bombs. President Ahmadinejad vowed his new govt would be 10 times stronger than the outgoing team, a television station reported. The government is to be unveiled next month, with the president having pledged to change the structure of the cabinet by making considerable changes to his team. Meanwhile, Frances foreign minister said on Thursday that Paris will recognise Mahmoud Ahmadinejads re-election as president of Iran but also build ties with the opposition movement ranged against him. Addressing lawmakers during a parliamentary question session, Bernard Kouchner said that as Ahmadinejad had been proclaimed president in Tehran it would be useless and counterproductive for France alone to reject this. But he also called for France to continue to support an opposition movement with a future among the Iranian people, to multiply our contacts with it, and continue to oppose whats going on in terms of nuclear energy. Ahmadinejad was declared the winner of Irans June 12 election despite claims of vote rigging from supporters of his defeated rivals that generated massive street demonstrations against the regime. Iran, meanwhile, on Thursday summoned the French envoy to Tehran in protest at alleged police brutality against demonstrators in France ahead of the July 14 Bastille Day celebrations, news agencies said. A foreign ministry statement carried by Iranian news agencies said Tehran registered its protest to Bernard Poletti against the beating up of French protesters by security officials ahead of this countrys national day. Iran condemns suppression of those who protest against (President Nicolas) Sarkozys policies, the statement said.
