U.S. Condemnation of Iranian President Ahmadinejad
(June 7, 2007)
The United States condemns President Ahmadi-Nejad's most recent comments advocating the destruction of the State of Israel. These are the latest in a line of statements isolating the Iranian regime from the rest of the international community and are further cause for mistrust. Ahmadi-Nejad's focus on attacking Israel and the regime's internationally condemned Holocaust denial conference in December, are troubling. We continue to call on the Government of Iran to cease this harmful rhetoric.
