Iran: Syria Weighs In With A Predictable Opinion

Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Muallem on Monday criticised the street protests that have rocked Tehran over the disputed presidential election, saying the Iran regime will not fall.

"The Iranian people have exercised their right to vote," he said of the June 12 poll that returned President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad power in what official results said was a landslide.

"Protecting Iranian lives cannot be expressed through the incitement to protest," Muallem told a news conference attended by visiting Dutch Foreign Minister Maxime Verhagen.

"Anyone betting on the fall of the Iranian regime will be a loser," Muallem said.
