In an interview with Ghalam Sabz internet newspaper, Mousavi, who has always resisted ideas of a centralized opposition organization and insisted that the opposition has the shape of interconnected social networks, said that he would now support a unified organization so long as "it has the form of a coalition front, and from its very formation, considers itself a companion to the Green Movement and other grassroots organizations such as the labour, women's, student and teachers movements and it is not after weakening any other organization."

Mousavi maintained that his insistence on the social networks model was due to the widespread arrest and violence exercised against the reformists.

Mousavi went on to refer to the sermon of Tehran Friday Mass Prayers Leader this week, Ayatollah Ahmad Jannati who stated that the reform movement (which the conservatives refer to as sedition) are not sitting idle; they are like a fire under the ashes."

Mousavi claimed that "The continued oppression and failure of the government to recognize the truth in addition to state lies, violations of the law, corruption and incompetence in domestic and international policies" will spread the reach of this burning fire from under the ashes.

The former prime minister of Iran added that two months after the television debates during the presidential campaign of 2009 he realized that the establishment was not after destroying himself or Mehdi Karroubi, the two chief opponents of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in the elections; but rather to "settle scores with all their rival forces and to homogenize the country."

Mir Hossein Mousavi stated that 2009 elections, was to be the "last curtain" in the a plan that has unfolded in the past twenty years by the totalitarians to turn Iran into a mock democracy.

The opposition leader also touched on the recent documents released on Wikileaks and maintained that while the Islamic Republic has been "imagining that it is convincing the Vatican, the US and European leaders, it has missed out on honing constructive relationships with its regional neighbours."

Wikileaks documents state that a number of Arab nations in the region have supported the option of a military attack on Iran.

Mousavi also referred to the documents revealing "Israeli policy of fomenting ethnic differences in Iran" and warned the people to remain alert against such provocations.
