Breaking: 30th Anniversary of the Iranian Hostage Crisis, Massive Protests in Iran- Live on Twitter
4 November 2009No Comment
Today, on the 30th anniversary of the Iranian hostage crisis where 53 Americans were taken hostage at the American Embassy in Iran and held captive for 444 days, massive protests are breaking out in Iran. President Obama issued this statement.
This event helped set the United States and Iran on a path of sustained suspicion, mistrust, and confrontation. I have made it clear that the United States of America wants to move beyond this past, and seeks a relationship with the Islamic Republic of Iran based upon mutual interests and mutual respect. We do not interfere in Iran’s internal affairs. We have condemned terrorist attacks against Iran. We have demonstrated our willingness to take confidence-building steps along with others in the international community. We have accepted a proposal by the International Atomic Energy Agency to meet Iran’s request for assistance in meeting the medical needs of its people. We have made clear that if Iran lives up to the obligations that every nation has, it will have a path to a more prosperous and productive relationship with the international community.
