TEHRAN -- Expediency Council Chairman Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani here on Wednesday said that Columbia University President Lee Bollinger’s insults to Iranian President Mahmud Ahmadinejad proves frustration and nervousness of the U.S. officials.

Ahmadinejad delivered a speech on Monday at New York’s Columbia University where the school’s president used disrespectful epithets in his introduction of the Iranian president.
Those who insulted Iranians would certainly suffer its repercussions, Rafsanjani added
