Tehran, Iran, Jan. 06 – Iran’s ambassador to the European Union blasted on Friday EU reactions to recent anti-Semitic comments by hard-line President of the Islamic Republic Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Ali Ahani, who is also Iran’s diplomatic envoy to Belgium, told a top official in the Belgian Foreign Ministry during a meeting that Iran condemned the EU reaction, Iran’s official state news agency IRNA reported

“It is very regretful that European states react with intolerance to reflections and observations opposed to their framework of views and thought”, Ahani told Marc Guelen, the director general for bilateral relations in Belgium’s foreign ministry.

Ahmadinejad has called the Holocaust a “myth” and said that Israel must be “wiped off the earth”. He has also called for Europe to offer some of its lands so that Jewish people could be “removed” from the Middle East.

Ahani said that the Iranian president’s views were “based on historical facts and regional realities”.

Ahani said that the “Zionist regime for its self interests with the support of the West” had portrayed the Holocaust as only directed against the Jews, adding that Tehran found such a position “unacceptable”.
