Khamenei rebuffs Ahmadinejad on official’s dismissalApril 21st, 2011 - 1:51 pm ICT by ANI
Tehran, Apr. 21 (ANI): Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has reportedly rebuffed President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s dismissal of Intelligence Minister, Hedar Moslehi.
Moslehi has been asked to remain in his post, the Washington Post reports.
In a letter carried by all Iranian news agencies, Khamenei told Intelligence Minister Heydar Moslehi and his officials to “continue their work,” effectively ending three days of uncertainty over Moslehi’s fate and the reasons for his apparently forced resignation.
Khamenei generally supports the government’s policies, and it is rare for him to step in and modify the president’s decisions. (ANI)
