Iran's Intelligence Minister Underlines National Unity
TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Intelligence Minister Gholam Hossein Mohseni Ejeii asked all political wings and parties in the country to make all-out efforts to enhance national unity and solidarity.
"We should not provide an excuse for the enemy through our internal conflicts," Ejeii told FNA, highlighting the necessity for all Iranians to strive to promote concordance and unity.
Asked to comment on the goals pursued by those who sought to foment tension in the country, the intelligence minister said such groups are "now striving to create a rift between the nation and the government and we should take care to foil materialization of their aspiration".
Following reelection of President Ahmadinejad in the June 12 election, Iran witnessed weeklong demonstrations, mainly in the capital Tehran, over the election results. The disagreement started after President Ahmadinejad's rivals Mehdi Karroubi and Mir-Hossein Mousavi rejected the result.
But after the Guardians Council endorsed healthiness of the 10th presidential voting in the country, calm was restored in the capital.
On the fate of the culprits in charge of the post-election unrests in Iran, Ejeii told FNA, "Naturally, those who had illegal moves and actions during this period (unrests) should be confronted through the law and their fate should be decided through a legal approach."
