Iran on Friday condemned the recent remarks made by US President George W. Bush, labeling them as "Obvious interference in Iran's internal affairs," IRNA reported from Tehran.
The Spokesman of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Hamid-Reza Asefi in a communique, a copy of which was faxed to IRNA, added, "Such adventurism is in direct contrast with the United States' commitments, stated in the text of the Algeria Declaration and proves that the US is not respecting its own international commitments."
Elsewhere in the communique, Asefi says, "No individual, or group, has ever commissioned Mr. Bush to safeguard their rights, nor is he responsible for supporting anyone here, and basically, keeping in mind the dark record of the United States in suppressing the democratic movements around the globe, he is not in a position to talk about such issues."
The communique ends advising the US President to heed the mounting disapproval of the American public opinion regarding the war launched against the Iraqi people, respect their righteous demand, and not contribute to further destabilization and insecurity in the region.
