Russia condemns conference on Holocaust in Iran

Russia condemns conference on Holocaust in Iran

Russia has joined other European countries and the US in condemning the conference on Holocaust in Tehran where delegates questioned whether Nazi Germany killed 6 MLN Jews during World War II and the existence of the state of Israel.

67 delegates from 30 countries took part in the 2-day debate initiated by Iran's President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Iran said it had organised the conference to allow researchers from countries such as Germany and France, where it is a crime to question the Holocaust, to speak freely.

Some experts said the conference was a response to Western policy on Iran.
