Parliament Foreign Policy and National Security Committee Chairman Alaeddin Boroujerdi said Americans have no right to even express their improper desires from Iran.

Reacting to a call by three US congressmen to travel to Iran to monitor late February elections, Boroujerdi said, “The Americans have no right to express such demands. Iran’s elections need no foreign watchdog because the country enjoys the strongest democracy in the region and our elections are held entirely transparently and healthily in accordance with international legal frameworks.”

Besides domestic executive and monitoring bodies inside Iran, members of the Iranian parliament are also allowed to monitor the course of elections and “there is no room for any other monitoring body to step in the procedure,” the senior MP added.
