Iran hardliners condemn Khatami
Members of Iran's parliament have made a formal complaint to the
intelligence minister over remarks made by former President Mohammad
On Friday Mr Khatami said the Islamic republic's founder, Ayatollah
Khomeini, had not wanted to export the revolution by armed force.
The MPs accuse him of jeopardising national security and want to know
if he had clearance to make the remarks.
They say his comments implicate Iran in events it has had no role in.
Mr Khatami's remarks have been interpreted as suggesting that Iran
supports insurgents in other countries.
"What did the Imam [Khomenei] mean by exporting the revolution?" he
asked in a speech on Friday to university students.
