Iran top leader warns West over alleged meddling

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) - Iran's state television says that the
country's supreme leader is warning Western governments of a
"negative impact" on relations over what he called their meddling
in Iran's postelection riots.
State television quoted Ayatollah Ali Khamenei as telling a
crowd of thousands in Tehran Monday that western governments must
be careful of their "hostile remarks and behaviors" because Iran
will react.
The supreme leader said Iran will pay attention to the remarks
and behaviors of these governments and said that it will definitely
have a negative impact on future relations with Iran.
Iran quashed street protests following its disputed June 12
election and the leadership has been trying to erase any lingering
doubts about the legitimacy of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad by
portraying the unrest as sparked by foreign meddling, not by public
anger.
