Members of Iran's National Security Council have told opposition leader Mir Hossein Moussavi that his repeated demands for the annulment of the June 12 election results are "illogical and unethical," the council's deputy head told the government-run Iranian Labor News Agency, CNN reported.

Esmaeel Kowsari told ILNA in an interview Friday that the council met with Moussavi, former presidential candidates Mehdi Karrubi and Mohsen Rezaie, and former Iran President Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, who now chairs the Assembly of Experts. The assembly is responsible for appointing or removing the supreme leader.

It was not clear when the meeting took place, but based on information from it, the NSC will prepare a report and make recommendations to parliament in light of the candidates' complaints, the Ministry of Interior, the Guardian Council and "higher levels," Kowsari told the news agency.
