"We do not want to take the place of the Iranian people. But we support the Iranians' desire for and their right to transparency and truth," Foreign Ministry spokesman Eric Chevallier told reporters."There are appeals and contestation and demands for transparency, coming from Iranian officials and a wide section of Iranian society.
