Iran summoned Argentina's top diplomat in Tehran on Monday after the country complained about the nomination of a man who has been linked to a 1994 terrorist bombing in Buenos Aires, Iranian media have reported.
Saying it had completed an investigation into alleged voter irregularities, Iran's election authority on Monday stood by its findings that gave hardline President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad an overwhelming victory and sparked more than two weeks of chaos in the streets.
The body overseeing elections in Iran reminded opposition candidates in the disputed presidential election that they have until Sunday to lodge any further complaints about the vote, state-run media reported.
Members of Iran's influential National Security Council have told opposition leader Mir Hossein Moussavi that his repeated demands for the annulment of the June 12 election results are "illogical and unethical," state media reported.
As street protests and voter skepticism rose over Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's election victory, the incumbent leader hailed the vote, saying it was a "great ordeal" but one that pointed "the way to the future."
