Obama statement on Iran :
Yesterday, June20 obama made a statement regarding ongoing conflicts in Iran. In his statement Obama urges Iranian President to stop the violence against Protesters.
"The Iranian government must understand that the world is watching. We mourn each and every innocent life that is lost. We call on the Iranian government to stop all violent and unjust actions against its own people. The universal rights to assembly and free speech must be respected, and the United States stands with all who seek to exercise those rights.
As I said in Cairo, suppressing ideas never succeeds in making them go away. The Iranian people will ultimately judge the actions of their own government. If the Iranian government seeks the respect of the international community, it must respect the dignity of its own people and govern through consent, not coercion.
Martin Luther King once said - "The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice." I believe that. The international community believes that. And right now, we are bearing witness to the Iranian peoples’ belief in that truth, and we will continue to bear witness.
For some reason I keep picturing Ronald Reagan speaking about the freedom seekers in Iran, somehow I think he would sound a lot less mushy than President Obama. All he has called for here is freedom of assembly, not freedom to self-govern. That said this is a step in the right direction."
Iran government Yesterday said that they are going to recount the 10% of "ballot boxes.”
