US treads warily to preserve hope of Tehran talks Barack Obama, in his first comments since the Iranian elections, said he was "deeply troubled" by the post-election violence. But the president held back from publicly criticising Iran, anxious to avoid accusations from Tehran of interference in internal elections, and derailing Washington's diplomatic overtures to Tehran.
Obama, adopting a softly-softly approach, said it was up to Iran to determine its leaders. But he added, "I am deeply troubled by the violence that I've been seeing on television."
He said the world was inspired by the demonstrators who had taken to the streets to protest at alleged election fraud. "The democratic process, free speech, the ability of people to peacefully dissent – all those are universal values and need to be respected.“

However, he was careful to avoid any confrontational remarks that Iran could use as an excuse to rebuff his call for direct negotiations.
