Tehran, Iran, Nov. 23 – A semi-official daily claimed on Wednesday that British Prime Minister Tony Blair had admitted to the United Kingdom’s role in recent unrest in Iran.

The daily Jomhouri Islami, which was founded by Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, wrote that Blair was forced to “unwillingly confess” to the role that the British government played in recent disturbances in the Islamic Republic.

Rising social despair and impoverishment have led to daily anti-government protests throughout the country, particularly by ethnic minorities such as Kurds, Arabs, Baluchis, and Turkmens.

There have also been several bomb attacks in the Arab-dominated Khuzestan Province in the south-east of the country, as well as in the Iranian capital over the past few months. No group has taken responsibility for the attacks, and there is speculation in some quarters that they might have been inside-jobs, particularly since the attacks in Tehran primarily targeted British company headquarters.

Jomhouri Islami quoted the British Prime Minister as saying that “no-one is talking about military action or any of the rest of it. … It may well be that the change in Iran comes from within”.

The daily described Blair’s comments as evidence of “obvious recent efforts by London to create unrest and tensions” in Iran.

British officials have accused Tehran of fuelling the insurgency in Iraq and have publicly declared their suspicions that Tehran is pursing a secret nuclear weapons program.

Tehran rejects all the charges. Senior Iranian officials, including hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, have claimed that Britain was involved in deadly bomb attacks in Khuzestan Province’s oil-rich city of Ahwaz.
