Tehran, YJC. Former president Mohammad Khatami says It is not possible to close the country’s doors at the world and achieve advancement and progress, too.
In a meeting with a group of university professors and students, Khatami said in response to their expressed concerns about elections in Iran “The people’s presence in elections means individuals’ capability through legal and democratic ways to have greater participation in their country’s decision making.”
He noted that Iranians should all try to make the existing democratic ways democratic in real sense of the word, so that they will not merely be titles, but rather quite meaningful.
“Some folks are probably thinking about how to solve this problem and God willing they will reach tangible results, so that what our revolution and our laws demanded will come true,” asserted Khatami.
“Different people and groups come with various viewpoints, our argument is that all viewpoints need to be heard, rather than those of certain groups, while observing lots of limitations for the others,” Khatami said.
