Erstaunlich deutliche Worte heute aus Teheran, kein gutes Zeichen für den Alliierten in Syrien:
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad condemned the „killings and massacre“ in key ally Syria, which has carried out a bloody crackdown on seven months of protests, in an interview with CNN.
„We condemn killings and massacre in Syria, whether it is security forces being killed or people and the opposition,“ Ahmadinejad said, according to excerpts of the interview reported in Farsi by the website of Iran’s state broadcaster on Saturday. (…)
Ahmadinejad’s comments, the strongest so far from an Iranian official against President Bashar Al-Assad’s regime, come as Damascus presses a deadly crackdown on dissent that has killed more than 3,000 people since March 15, most of them civilians, according to the United Nations.
