Iranians Want Nuclear Power and U.S. Relations


Morning Edition, March 23, 2006 Behzad Yaghmaian talks with Renee Montagne about the competing factions in Iranian politics. The majority of Iranians support the government's call for nuclear energy. But, at the same time, many support a normalized relationship with the United States. Yaghmaian is the author of Social Change in Iran: An Eyewitness Account of Dissent, Defiance, and New Movements for Rights.




Yaghmaian:

"The Iranian population, although it is very much against the Iranian government, and especially this new faction, Ahmadinejad and the people around him, at the same time because of being bullied by the United States, they support Iran's ambition to build nuclear energy.... As someone who wishes to see a democratic government in Iran I think the best thing that can happen in Iran, one thing in terms of its relationship between the United States, is for the United States to leave Iran alone. Any type of intervention or gesture from the United States in the past has led to further repression of freedom of expression in Iran, he further stifling of the reform movement in Iran."
