Ahmadinejad: Gaddafi must meet public demand

23 February 2011 [17:07] - TODAY.AZ
Amidst a fresh wave of violent crackdown on revolution in Libya, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has urged Libyan ruler Muammar Gaddafi to meet public demand.

President Ahmadinejad addressed leaders of countries who replied the popular revolutions “with a bullet” and said, “I highly recommend leaders of these countries to let their people express their words and that they should follow public views,” IRNA reported Wednesday.

He expressed the world's outrage at “bad behavior of the Libyan government towards the people” and added, “All should yield to demands of their own nation. Otherwise, the outcome is already clear.”

The Iranian chief executive warned that resistance against demands of a nation would result in no achievement, stressing world leaders to “hear the voice of their people.”

President Ahmadinejad pointed out that world leaders should be along with people, behave and live like them and make efforts for their progress and development.

On Tuesday, Libyan army warplanes bombed protesters in the capital city of Tripoli following eight days of pro-democracy protests in the North African nation.

The 68-year-old Gaddafi has rejected the pro-democracy protesters' calls for his resignation despite the killing of more than 1,000 Libyans by the Libyan military.

Instead, the Libyan ruler has pledged to crush the ongoing revolution meant to put an end to his rule. President Ahmadinejad also predicted that the world is on threshold of “great developments” which would happen across the world.

However, the Iranian president emphasized that such developments require the establishment of a “fair world order”, which respects the rights and dignity of all humans and puts an end to aggression and occupation.
