Report: Iran's Revolutionary Guard chief backs nuclear talks
TEHRAN, Iran, April 7 (AP) — Iranian state television is reporting that the chief of Iran's powerful Revolutionary Guard has offered his support to Iranian nuclear negotiators.
The reported comments by Gen. Mohammad Ali Jafari come as some 200 hard-liners protested Tuesday against the framework deal struck last week between Iran and six world powers.
State TV's website quoted Jafari as saying: "With God's grace, the revolutionary children of Islamic Iran have succeeded in defending the rights of the Iranian nation and the Iranian nation and the Guard appreciate their honest political efforts."
He also said Iran as a nation supported the diplomatic efforts.
The Revolutionary Guard is the single most powerful institution in Iran. It exerts a strong behind-the-scenes role in Iranian affairs.
