Azerbaijan, Baku, Jun.10/ Trend R.Zamanov
Iran is serious about its territorial integrity and has no intention of holding talks with any country over its ownership of the three Persian Gulf islands of Abu Musa, the Greater and Lesser Tunbs,
presidential candidate Saeed Jalili said.
Making campaign trail stops in several towns and cities in Fars and Hormozgan provinces, the priciplist candidate said that the country's foes tried to discourage Iranians in the past 4 years but the nation blocked their plots by using the discourse of the Islamic Revolution.
He went on to note that the recent victories by Hezbollah in Lebanon were also inspired by the discourse of the Islamic Revolution.
Iran will hold the 11th presidential election on June 14, 2013.
The voters will select the successor of the current President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who is not able to participate in the elections for the third term according to the country's constitutional laws.
The president of Iran is elected for a four-year term in a national election. The Guardian Council has vetted the candidates for qualifications.
