E.U. appeals for end to violence in Iran

July 15, Helsinki (dpa) - The European Union (E.U.) appealed on Thursday to all groups in Iran to ``refrain from all kind of violence''.

A statement issued in Helsinki by the current Finnish presidency of the union said the E.U. ``has followed with concern the reaction of police and security forces to the course of events related to student demonstrations which started on July 8 in Teheran and which have spread to other cities.

``The European Unions appeals to all groups to refrain from all kind of violence.''

The statement, which was issued by the Finnish foreign ministry, went on: ``The European Union has noted the efforts of the Government of the Islamic Republic of Iran to pursue a course of institutionalising the democratic structures and respect for civil society as well as promoting respect for the rights and freedoms of individuals.''

The E.U. ``welcomes the condemnation by the Iranian government of violence that has been used against demonstrators''.

The union ``believes that the present situation can find an appropriate solution only through dialogue and on the basis of universally recognised human rights and fundamental freedoms''.
