Wikileaks: Ali Jafari slapped Ahmadinejad in early 2010

Posted in Uncategorized by fartashphoto on January 1, 2011

Iran has denied a WikiLeaks report that Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was slapped by the chief of the country’s Revolutionary Guards, the Tehran press reported Saturday.

According to a leaked US diplomatic cable, General Mohammad-Ali Jafari slapped Ahmadinejad in early 2010, as Tehran was still dealing with the fallout from a disputed election.

A Revolutionary Guards spokesman told Fars news agency that “those behind WikiLeaks have availed themselves of the fame they gained through their insider information and invent false stories.”

Spokesman Ramezan Sharif said that some of the WikiLeaks disclosures about the United States might have been true but there had also been several fabricated pieces of information.

President Ahmadinejad last year dismissed the WikiLeaks documents as worthless. He said they followed certain political aims and had no impact on Iran’s relations with any other states.

Iran was especially upset about the leaked documents saying that Saudi Arabia and Bahrain urged the US to halt Iran’s nuclear programme by any means, including a military attack.
