Tehran sceptical over peace process progress with Barak

TEHRAN, May 18 (AFP) -The Iranian media expressed scepticism Tuesday over the chances of progress in the Middle East peace process after the victory of Israeli opposition leader Ehud Barak over Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

"Many experts reject the exaggerated optimism over the peace process after the victory of Barak," state radio said in a first reaction to the overwhelming victory of the Labor Party leader in the general elections in Israel.

The radio said that "even the defeat" of Netanyahu "will not lead the peace process out of the current dead-end."

Iran, which does not recognise the Jewish state, is opposed to the Middle East peace process and supports militant Lebanese and Palestinian groups in their armed struggle against Israel.
