Janati Warns EU Against Interfering in Iran Elections

TEHERAN - An Iranian Ayatollah warned the European Union on Friday against interfering in the parliamentary election process.

Relations with the EU does not mean that Europeans can interfere in our legal system and election process, said Ayatollah Ahmad Jannati, a senior member of the senate-like Guardian Council, at Friday prayers in Teheran.

The European Union had voiced grave concern over the ban of more than 3,500 reformist candidates from running in the February 20 elections.

The EU should fulfill its obligations to Iran rather than come up with new issues such human rights and misuse them as political tools against us, said Jannati, one of the front-runners of the hardline clergy faction.

Iran last year signed the additional International Atomic Energy Agency protocol and had allowed unlimited inspection of its nuclear sites in return for an E.U. promise to acknowledge Iran’s right to peaceful nuclear activities and to assist the country in this field.

According to Teheran, the EU has failed to fulfill its promises and Foreign Minister Kamal Kharrazi even warned that Iran might not see any reason to continue the dialogue.
