Ahmadinejad urges trial of Israeli leaders
The Iranian President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, has taken a swipe at Israeli leaders, emphasizing the need of bringing them to justice in international courts, Press TV reported.
"Leaders of the Zionist regime [Israel] should face trial and rights of the Palestinian people should be restored because the regime is currently in a weak position," the Islamic Republic News Agency quoted Ahmadinejad as saying during a telephone conversation with his Syrian counterpart, Bashar al-Assad.
He underlined that the global front against imperialism must become stronger.
Ahmadinejad slammed 'certain countries' for their efforts to impose a compromise on the Palestinian people and said, "We should call on international bodies to bring leaders of the Zionist regime to trial."
The Iranian president described the level of cooperation between Tehran and Damascus as satisfactory, reiterating that the bilateral ties changed the regional conditions over the last three decades to the interests of both sides.
AL-Assad praised the strategic relations between Iran and Syria and said that their common enemies would never damage the amicable ties.
