Ahmadinejad calls 9/11 a 'plan to provide pretext for Afghanistan, Iraq occupation'
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has said that dubbing the wave of developments sweeping the region as "Islamic awakening" does not mean that it only belongs to Muslims, but rather it means the awakening of human and his return to his true identity, which has taken shape under the banner of Islam.
Ahmadinejad made the remarks during the fifth meeting of the Ahl al-Bayt World Assembly, which was held in Tehran on Sunday, Mehr news agency reported.
He stated that the main problem facing human society is the unfair and ungodly management of the world's affairs.
Elsewhere in his remarks, Ahmadinejad commented on the September 11, 2001 attacks against the United States, saying, "The incident was a complicated plan devised to ... provide a pretext for the occupation of Afghanistan and Iraq, which has led to the deaths and injuries of more than one million people."
Assembly of Experts Chairman Ayatollah Mohammad Reza Mahdavi Kani also delivered a speech at the meeting.
