Iran’s Presidential vote was Free and Transparent: Khamenei

Updated at: 1546 PST, Friday, June 19, 2009

TEHRAN: Iran's supreme leader says there was ``definitive victory'' and no rigging in presidential elections that set off days of unprecedented protests.

Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei offered no concession to opposition supporters who are demanding the elections be canceled and held again.

He blamed Great Britain and Iran's external enemies for the unrest, vigorously defending the ruling system in his first public comments since supporters of challenger Mir Hossein Mousavi flooded the streets.
