Khatami: “Do not downplay protests”

۲۰ اردیبهشت ۱۳۸۹

Font Size + | - Reset

Mohammad Khatami, former Iranian president and head of Centre for the Dialogue among Civilizations, expressed concern over the situation of “different aspects” of the country and said that the ruling class cannot resolve the issues through mere “slogans”. Speaking for a group of student and cultural activists, Khatami insisted that all political prisoners need to be released and all students, professors, teachers and citizens who have been harmed in the post-election events have to be compensated.
According to Khatami, “exiting the security-laden atmosphere and entering a freer space, ending restrictions on political organizations and devising necessary steps for holding appropriate elections in the future” can lead the country out of the current crisis. The opposition leader urged the Islamic Republic authorities to use all the country’s talents and power to resolve the difficulties in accordance with the provisions of the country’s Constitution. “If we make warnings, it is because we want to keep the system on the right track and deliver it from the mistaken paths that can lead to even worse situations.”
Khatami warned the authorities that “ignoring the protests and making false accusations against protesters will not make them disappear.”
