Coalition for peace

President Khatami called for a global front against arrogance, terrorism, war, discrimination and double-standard approaches that currently characterize relations among states. He said that international movements to install democratic governments will only succeed if the regime that seeks to be installed has the popular mandate or is accepted by the people. "Governments which are elected by their peoples but nonetheless disregard their will cannot claim to be true promoters of justice and international peace merely by relying on their popular mandate." Referring to the negative effect on the performance of US officials of the September 11 terrorist events as a pretext to the call for a "coalition for war," he reminded that the Iranian nation had offered the alternative of a “coalition for peace" based on justice and not revenge.
