She said in an interview with Reuters: "They were elected because the people do not want to live in a dictatorial tyrannical system from the Dark Ages." She added: "The interests of the Iranian people are not served by an Iranian government that fosters terrorism, that is sending weapons into Palestinian territories, that is trying to acquire weapons of mass destruction." (Homayoun Majd, Washington) Five Majles Reformists Supported "Independence" of Islamic Student Movement * In a message to the annual meeting of the union of the Islamic student associations, the largest pro-government student organization, five Majles MPs said patriarchal meddling in the free and cultural process taking place in Iran's universities threaten the independence of the student organization.

خانم كونداليزا رايس، مشاور امنيت ملي رييس جمهوري آمريكا، در مصاحبه اي با خبرگزاري رويتر، رهبران منتخب مردم در جمهوري اسلامي را ترغيب كرد كه در جهت منافع مردم ايران گام بردارند. وي گفت مردم آنها را به خاطر اصلاحات انتخاب كردند، براي اينكه مردم ايران نمي خواهند در يك نظام ديكتاتوري از قرون تاريك زندگي كنند. وي گفت دولتي كه تروريسم پرور است و به سرزمين هاي فلسطيني اسلحه مي فرستد و مي كوشد به سلاح هاي كشتار انبوه دست يابد، در خدمت منافع و علائق مردم ايران نيست. وي همچنين در آستانه سفر رئيس حكومت پاكستان به آمريكا اظهار داشت آمريكا نسبت به اقداماتي كه پرويز مشرف جهت تقويت قدرت خود با تغيير قانون اساسي در اين كشور انجام داد، موافق نيست.
