Tehran, July 5, (ICANA) – Iran Majlis Director General for International Affairs Hossein Sheikholeslam says the ousted Egyptian president, Mohamed Morsi, was not fit for leading the civilized nation of Egypt as he failed to meet public demands.

Morsi not qualified to lead Egyptians

“Unfortunately, Morsi failed to give a good answer to people’s demands both on domestic and foreign levels, and this [failure] resulted in people's disgruntlement,” Sheikholeslam said on Thursday.

Sheikholeslam referred to the Morsi administration’s ties with the Israeli regime and his support for Salafi militants fighting against the Syrian government as major factors which eroded his popularity.

He added that Morsi’s silence on the killing of the Shia cleric, Sheikh Hassan Shehata, and a number of his disciples by Salafi extremists in Giza Province in June dealt the last blow to Egyptians’ trust in their president.

Sheikholeslam, however, noted that Tehran does not approve of the rule of a military junta over Egypt and believes that the intervention of the army in the country’s political developments must be temporary.

“The Islamic Republic ... calls for the [Egyptian] people’s demands to be met only through legal channels and by holding free and broad-based elections to ensure the highest participation of people, parties and other political currents,” he said.

The Iranian official further expressed hope that sectarian strife would be avoided in Egypt and that people play a more prominent role in deciding the future of their country.
