President Ahmadinejad Attends Cabinet Meeting

Ahmadinejad disappointed the enemies who were hoping to create differences among nation, officials and Leadership, Head of the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB) Ezzatollah Zarghami said on Sunday.

He made the remarks on the sidelines of a Sunday Cabinet meeting.

Zarghami added that over the past few days the global arrogance tried to exploit Iran's internal affairs, which as the Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei said “are not of high importance.”

The president had not attended two cabinet meetings after the resignation of Iran's intelligence minister was rejected by Ayatollah Khamenei.

On April 17, Heidar Moslehi resigned from his position and was appointed as the presidential advisor in intelligence affairs by Ahmadinejad.

Iranian lawmakers had called on President Ahmadinejad to end an eight-day boycott and accept the Supreme Leader's decision to reinstate the intelligence minister, Shargh newspaper reported on Saturday.

More than 216 conservatives out of the parliament's 290 MPs wrote a letter to Ahmadinejad after an "extraordinary" meeting on Thursday, urging him to accept the reinstatement of Heydar Moslehi, the report said quoting Tehran MP Reza Akrami.

"You are expected to adhere to the Supreme Leader (Ayatollah Ali Khamenei) and put an end to that which our enemies are taking advantage of," the lawmakers wrote.

Ayatollah Khamenei reinstated Moslehi despite Ahmadinejad having reportedly forced his resignation, only minutes after it was made public on April 17.

The Supreme Leader on Saturday urged state officials to refrain from actions which would give excuse to "the enemy and create a tumult" for the country, in remarks broadcast by state television.

"(When) a tiny lack of coordination appears, the country is harmed," he said.

"If the lack of coordination is wide and the enemies are made aware of them, (the enemies) create an uproar. They revel. They rejoice when an atmosphere of challenge and confrontation comes to light" in the country.

Ahmadinejad's chief media adviser, Ali Akbar Javanfekr, wrote on his website Friday that the president was very "concerned" that if he bowed to pressure, his "achievements" would be lost.

But he also stated Ahmadinejad would "eventually" return to work and put the issue behind him.

His remarks were echoed later on Saturday by Tehran lawmaker Fatemeh Aliya after her two-hour meeting with Ahmadinejad, saying the president would "continue his work".

"The president has explanations (for his boycott) which he will soon offer" to the people, she was quoted as telling Borna news agency.
