Iran‘s president on Wednesday told Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi and other embattled Middle East leaders to “let their peoples express their opinions and then follow their notions,” Iran‘s state-run Islamic Republic News Agency reported.

Meanwhile, Iran’s government continued to violently suppress a domestic protest movement that arose in response to the disputed 2009 re-election of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Mr. Ahmadinejad on Wednesday “urged those leaders of regional countries who respond to the demands of their nations and their revolutionary uprisings with hot bullets to join their peoples’ movements instead of creating blood baths,” the news agency reported.
