EU criticizes Iran’s UN statements regarding 9-11
- Mahmoud Ahmadinejad stated at the UN that there was a US “plot” behind the 9-11 terrorist attacks and that most people believe the U.S. orchestrated the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
“The Iranian president’s statement that USA was somehow responsible for the 9-11 attacks or that most Americans think that’s the case is outrageous and unacceptable,” Catherine Ashton, head of EU diplomacy European expressed in a statement. “It is for this reason that all representatives of the 27 nations of the EU walked out,”, she said.
The United States and the EU delegations left the Assembly in protest, who referred to one of the “theories” regarding the 9-11 attacks, which state that they were orchestrated by “certain parts of U.S. government. ”
“On behalf of the EU, I would like to express my solidarity with the families and friends of people who were injured or died in the 9-11 attacks” added Ashton.
