Iran FM: Signs of accepting reality seen in Powell's remarks

Iran Foreign Minister Kamal Kharrazi on Friday reacted positively to the Thursday's remarks of US Secretary of State Colin Powell regarding Iran, IRNA reported from Tehran.

There could be seen signs of accepting reality in Mr. Powell's statements, Kharrazi said.

US Secretary of State Colin Powell in a radio interview on Thursday said that Washington should not directly intervene in the current protests against the Iranian government.

Powell also reminded listeners that President Mohammad Khatami had been elected freely.

Of course, the stances adopted by the Americans are not stable and its reason is that they do not have precise knowledge about the Iranian society and are easily influenced by this or that, Kharrazi said.

An example of this American behavior could be witnessed in their hasty support for the recent unrest in Iran, something they have now realized how unimportant it was, he added.

In order to have a fair assessment of US approach towards events in Iran, one has to see whether such attitude would be lasting or not and whether it would lead to any change of approach towards Iran, the minister stressed.
