World Leaders Hail Ahmadinejad’s Reelection

TEHRAN (FNA)- A large number of the world countries felicitated Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on his reelection in the June 12 presidential election, while foes of the Islamic Republic expressed concern.

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez was among the first world leaders to congratulate his Iranian counterpart for the success of his re-election bid, in yesterday’s poll which saw an unprecedented voter turnout of 85% .

"The victory of Dr. Ahmadinejad in the recent election is a win for all people in the world and free nations against global arrogance," Chavez said on Saturday.

Pakistan’s President Asif Ali Zardari, Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gilani, and Afghan President Hamid Karzai conveyed their separate congratulatory messages to President Ahmadinejad on Sunday.

In the Arab world, Arab League Secretary General Amr Moussa congratulated Ahmadinejad on his historic election win, saying that he hopes his re-appointment would promote better relations between Iran and Arab countries.

The Amir of Qatar Sheikh Hamad Bin Khalifa Al-Thani also lauded Ahmadinejad’s re-election as Iranian president.

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad sent a congratulatory message to his Iranian counterpart on Saturday, in which he wished the prosperity and welfare of the Iranian people.

Leader of Egyptian Ikhwan al-Muslemin Mohammad-Mehdi Akef, Palestine’s Hamas Resistance, and Lebanon’s Hezbollah Movement, hailed President Ahmadinejad on his victory in separate messages.

"The outcome of the June 12 elections in Iran show the immense popularity of Iran’s policy," read a statement by Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum, press tv reported.

"Ahmadinejad’s victory proves his success in sponsoring and maintaining the people’s interests and hopes and protecting them from the global threats," he added.

The Israeli officialdom, however, was quick to voice concern over Ahmadinejad’s election victory.

"The problem presented by Iran for the international community is not personal, but derives from its policies," Israeli Foreign Minster Avigdor Liberman said in a statement.

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton also responded rather cautiously to Ahmadinejad’s landslide win.

Canadian Foreign Minister Lawrence Cannon expressed serious reservation about Friday’s historic polls and said Canadian embassy officials in Tehran are closely monitoring the election aftermath.

Friday’s election witnessed incumbent Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad win 24.5 million of the votes, over 62%.

Ahmadinejad’s main challenger, Mir-Hossein Moussavi, came second with 13.2 million votes, followed by Mohsen Rezaei with more than 630 thousand votes and Mehdi Karroubi with 320 thousand votes.

Iran’s media is almost as slavish as ours.

    The way these dictators twist words is truly astonishing. Iran is not free, wrong is not right, and the United States is not “global arrogance.”
