Opposition leaders Mehdi Karroubi and Mir Hossein Moussavi reportedly applied for permits to set up a rally on February 14.
According to the London-based daily, the two published a letter sent to the Iranian Interior Ministry on their websites, in which they ask permission to "declare our solidarity" with demonstrators in the region "seeking freedom against the governments of tyranny."
The ministry did not respond.
Moussavi's Green Movement called for Iranians to take to the streets
after President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was elected for a second term in
2009. The protests lasted for months, and the movement claims it was an
inspiration for the recent uprisings in Tunisia and Egypt.
In Iran, both the government and the opposition have supported the demonstrations in Tunisia and Egypt.
