Recent Revolts Vow Declining US Power: MP

The chairman of the Iran's Majlis (parliament) Committee on National Security and Foreign Policy said the deep and strategic developments in the region were in the interest of regional nations. Boroujerdi made the remarks in a meeting with Ecuador's Parliament Speaker Fernando Cordero on Wednesday. Following the collapse of the regimes in Tunisia and Egypt, waves of pro-democracy protests are spreading across the Middle East. At least 1,000 people were killed in Tripoli on Monday by airstrikes conducted by the Libyan military in a desperate effort meant to quell the popular uprising, according to some reports. The International Federation for Human Rights says as many as 400 others have also been killed since the onset of protests in the North African country on February 15. At least two Yemeni university students were killed and 10 others were wounded when security forces opened fire on unarmed students protesting in front of the Sana'a University. On the same day, the police shot and killed a protester and wounded four others in the southern city of Aden. Days of government crackdown on demonstrators in Bahrain have left seven people dead, hundreds injured and 70 more missing. In Morocco, five pro-democracy protesters were killed and several others were wounded as thousands demanded that the Moroccan King give up some of his powers. The Iranian lawmaker stressed the importance of expanding and strengthening parliamentarian ties and said inter-parliamentary relations could lead to new measures for increasing cooperation between the two countries. “The Islamic Republic of Iran's progresses in new technologies and primary sciences are a source of support for enhancing the relations of the two countries in the economic and industrial fields and in producing advanced medicine.” Cordero, for his part, described his talks in Tehran as constructive and said “expanding friendly cooperation with Iran is of high importance for Ecuador.”
