( Irna ) - President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said here Wednesday that sponsors of the Annapolis confab were only following political propaganda.
Talking to IRNA at the end of a cabinet session, he said, since the conference lacked the minimum requirements, it failed." "Even the most unintelligent people from the political point of view will soon understand that the Annapolis conference was already a failure," he added.
When the real representatives of the Palestinian nation and the resistance groups were not attending the conference and in addition to that the rights, votes, and demands of the Palestinian nation were not recognized, hundreds of such meetings would be futile, the Iranian president reiterated.
"They are following a political propaganda to say that the Arab states have sat around a table with the Zionist regime," he said urging them to let the Arab states hold a referendum in their own countries to see whether their nations agreed with their participation in the confab or not.
Referring to his telephone conversation with Saudi King Abdullah, Ahmadinejad said, "He (the Saudi King) said that they neither recognized Israel nor would let the Palestinian right be violated."
On the recent report issued by Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Mohamed ElBaradei, the president said, "ElBaradei's report is not two-sided. It is fully transparent and from the legal point of view is one hundred percent to the benefit of Iran."
He reiterated, "ElBaradei's report is a great political victory for the Iranian nation."
