Helping Gaza Will Prevent Genocide
-- In a meeting with UN secretary general Ban Ki-Moon, President Mahmud Ahmadinejad said helping Gaza will prevent genocide in the coastal strip.
Noting that the people of Gaza have been under siege for over three years, the President warned about the danger of Zionist regimes’ growing racism.
He stressed that Palestinians’ right to national sovereignty must be recognized and they should be able to determine their future in a free referendum.
Referring to the situation in Afghanistan, Dr Ahmadinejad said there is no military solution for the war-torn country. The Islamic Republic of Iran believes the only solution lies in entrusting Afghanistan’s affairs to its people, he added.
He also pointed to Iran’s nuclear issue and slammed adoption of yet another sanction resolution against Iran, despite Iran’s good will gestures and signing the Tehran declaration. The president reiterated that the sanctions would have no effects on Iran’s economy.
The unjustifiable veto power, terrorism and insecurity in the world, drug trafficking, and the flood in Pakistan were among other issues the president raised in the meeting.
UN secretary general for his part thanked Iran’s constructive role in promoting peace and security in the region, especially in Afghanistan, and said Iran can also play an important role in the Middle East peace and the world security.
Condemning terrorism in any part of the world, Ban Ki-moon said terrorism has become a great global challenge and that fighting it requires a unified strategy.
President Ahmadinejad is in New York to attend the annual United Nations General Assembly.
