Iran, Like-Minded States Hammering Out Solution to Libya Crisis

“We are working on the proposals, and if we obtain our expected results God willing, we will announce them,” Salehi told reporters in Tehran on Tuesday.

“We are seeking to help realize public demands in Libya and defuse the situation in the country,” he added.

Asked if Tehran intends to recognize the Libyan opposition national council, Salehi stated, “The issue in question is not the intention to recognize revolutionaries or not to recognize,” but Iran’s principled policy is that the legitimate demands of the people, no matter where they live, should be responded to in an appropriate way.

He went on to say that NATO forces are furnishing the opposition with weapons, which is in contravention of the United Nations Security Council Resolution 1973.

The NATO forces are “seeking to exacerbate the situation in this country,” he noted.

Elsewhere in his remarks, the Iranian foreign minister commented on the unrest in Syria, saying that a differentiation should be made between popular uprisings and the movements that are being made in certain countries, such as Syria, with the aim of exploiting the situation unfolding in the Arab world.

“In Syria, the majority of people had legitimate demands, and (Syrian President) Mr. Bashar al-Assad has made some promises to satisfy those demands and have so far fulfilled some (of his promises),” he added.

He also said that the Islamic Republic of Iran has adopted a clear stance toward the developments playing out in the region.
