Italy aims for G8 condemnation of Iran violence

TRIESTE, Italy (Reuters) - Italy, hosting a meeting of G8 foreign ministers, said on Thursday it was working on a joint declaration condemning post-election violence in Iran.

“We are working on a document that should condemn the violence and the repression and at the same time stress that electoral procedures are an (internal) Iranian matter,” said Italian Foreign Minister Franco Frattini.

“We (the international community) can’t recount the vote.”
