Iran has completely come out of the international control, son of the overthrown shah and last prince Reza Pahlavi said.

"Iran is a closed country and international community does not get neutral information from there specifically in recent times when the Iranian government has banned international media," Pahlavi said in his interview with Trend .

Islamic Republic of Iran saw the strongest unrest for the last 30 years since the establishment of the Islamic state after results of the June 12 presidential vote were published. Reformist candidate Mir-Hossein Mousavi, who lost the elections, accused the government of rigging vote results and urged population to demonstrate.

Representatives of some international media outlets were expelled from the country and access to some Web sites were blocked.

Pahlavi said the ongoing protest actions make the current regime more aggressive and there is almost revolutionary atmosphere in Iran.

"I believe that Iran will find its democratic path and future. I want to say to Iranian people that they are not alone. We support them," Pahlavi said.
