Majles and President on Opposing Sides of Iraqi Insurgents
August 23, 2004 - President Khatami said on Monday that the Islamic government was not supporting any groups or persons in Iraq, as Mahmoud Mohammadi, head of the Majles foreign relations committee urged the government to throw its support behind Moqta Sadr, who continues to resist Iraqi and US armies from strongholds in Najaf. Khatami said the Islamic government wanted a peaceful and stable Iraq. He said “the Americans” must accept the responsibility for what goes on Iraq and allow the Iraqi people make their own decisions. His comments came a day after Iraqi foreign minister Hoshyar Zebari told Radio Farda’s Middle East correspondent Peyman Pezhman that he had not seen any evidence linking the Islamic Republic to the Moqta Sadr insurgents.
