|Nobody stays under house arrest indefinitely: Iranian president||
TEHRAN – The conditions in the coming months inside Iran will be comparatively better than what used to exist in the past, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said in an interview with CNN published on Wednesday, noting that nobody will remain in prison forever, and nobody stays under house arrest indefinitely.
Asked whether protest leaders Mirhossein Mousavi and Mehdi Karoubi would be released from house arrest, Rouhani told Fareed Zakaria, “Well, nobody will remain in prison forever. And nobody stays under house arrest indefinitely. I believe that the conditions which prevail inside Iran call for peace, call for reconciliation, more convergence, less divergence.
“My feeling tells me that the conditions in the coming months inside Iran will be comparatively better than what used to exist in the past. With this, I share the hope that the day will come wherein peace, brotherhood, peaceful coexistence will be much more tangible inside Iran in comparison to years past. And I have every confidence that that day will come.”
