Iran, Indonesia Urge Respect for Rights

The statement was issued by Iranian Parliament (Majlis) Speaker Ali Larijani and Indonesian Speaker of House of Representatives Marzuki Alie in Jakarta on Thursday following official talks between the two sides on key mutual and regional issues.

The two parliament speakers stressed the importance of respecting legitimate rights of people in the Middle East and North Africa to determine their political fate and noted that democracy should entail historical and cultural diversity and respect various views.

The statement also denounced any foreign interference in domestic affairs of regional countries.

In recent months, a wave of revolutions and anti-government uprisings has swept across the Arab world.

In January, a revolution in Tunisia ended the 23-year rule of former President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali.

In February, another revolution led to the ouster of former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak after three decades of authoritarian rule. Both dictators were firmly backed by the US and most other Western 'democracies.'

Revolutions have also begun in Libya, Yemen, and Bahrain, while anti-government demonstrations have been held in Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Oman, and Algeria.

Larijani and Alie also expressed their support for an agreement between Palestinian Hamas and Fatah factions to form an interim unity government and called for recognizing an independent Palestinian country.

In May, Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal and acting Palestinian Authority Chief Mahmoud Abbas of Fatah signed a reconciliation deal in Egypt, paving the way for the creation of an interim unity government.

Hamas and Fatah have been at odds since Hamas won the Palestinian parliamentary elections in January 2006.

The dispute marginalized the faction's governance to the Gaza Strip -- a comparably smaller portion of Palestinian territories.
