Iran to `confront` opposition groups: Khamenei

Iran`s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei warned opposition groups they will be "confronted" if they jeopardise the nation`s security, in an address during Friday prayers in Tehran.



Tehran: Iran`s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei warned opposition groups they will be "confronted" if they jeopardise the nation`s security, in an address during Friday prayers in Tehran.
"Those who draw swords against the regime will be confronted," Khamenei, who has the final say on all national issues, said as he led the weekly Muslim prayers at Tehran university.

"Differences of views should not lead to conflicts ... the policy of the regime is to work with the majority. But if opposition groups have ideas that are against the nation`s security and the principles of the regime, they will be confronted," he said.

The Islamic republic is engulfed in its worst crisis following the disputed re-election of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in the June 12 poll, which his rivals claim was the result of massive vote rigging.

The all-powerful Khamenei has steadfastly defended Ahmadinejad`s victory.
