Iran rejects Clinton ”military dictatorship” comments
Iran slammed the United States on Tuesday for saying Tehran was moving toward a "military dictatorship", accusing Washington of pursuing wrong policies in the Middle East. "They themselves are involved in a sort of military dictatorship and have practically ignored the realities and the truths in the region," Iran's Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said, according to ISNA news agency.
"America has a wrong attitude towards the issues in the Middle East and it is the continuation of their past wrong policies," he said. "They themselves are involved in a sort of military dictatorship and have practically ignored the realities and the truths in the region "
U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Monday the United States believes Iran's Revolutionary Guards are driving the country towards military dictatorship. "We are sorry for Mrs Clinton...for trying to divert public opinion in the region towards unreal and untruthful matters," Mottaki said.
