European countries failed exams during the Iranian presidential elections, Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said at the Friday prayer. These countries interfere into Iranian domestic affairs not only by secret means, but also openly, Fars news agency said.
Some 30 countries took part in elections to the European Parliament and voter turnout was between 25 and 42 percent. However, voter turnout of Iranian elections was 85 percent, Mottaki said.
The "foreign provocateurs" with their accusations of anomalous count of vote and analysis of voter turnover want to injure Iranian people, Mottaki added.
The strong resistance took place in Tehran after the Iranian presidential elections on June 12, 2009. During the presidential elections in Iran on June 12, the current President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad gained 66 percent of votes. His main rival, Mir Hussein Mousavi accused the government of falsifying the results of voting. The people dissatisfied with the results of the elections caused clashes between police and opposition supporters. Clashes killed 20 people, and about 1,032 people were arrested. Most of the arrested people were released.
The Iranian Government accused the western countries, particularly the United Kingdom of creating tension in the country, of disorder initiation and interference into domestic affairs of the country after the June 12presidential elections.
