FM denies saying “Holocaust should not happen again”

Tuesday, 4 February 2014

Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif categorically denied the remarks attributed to him about Israel, stressing that the Iran’s view about the Zionist regime (Israel) has not changed. Some Israeli media, including Ynetnews and German TV station Phoenix, misquoted the foreign minister as saying that “Holocaust should not happen again” and that “the extermination of Jews by the Nazi regime was tragically cruel and should not happen again.” Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Hasan Qashqavi rejected media reports about Zarif’s statements as untrue, and said: “In a phone conversation that I had with Mr Zarif he completely rejected the remarks attributed to him and declared that Iran’s stance about the (Zionist) regime (Israel) is what has been repeatedly announced by the country’s diplomacy apparatus and this stance has not changed.”
