(IRNA) - President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said that the Zionist regime is a constant threat to the Middle East states.
"This threat has caused the regional countries to divert their resources from development to spending them on purchasing arms which will increase discord among them," he told participants of the international conference World Vision on Holocaust who met him in Tehran, reports Trend.
Stating that establishment of the Zionist regime and using the Holocaust as propaganda aim at dominating the region, he added, "As the Soviet Union disappeared, the Zionist regime will also vanish and humanity will be liberated".
The president reiterated that certain European and US politicians could no longer term atrocities of the Zionist regime "self-defence" and the resistance of Palestinians against occupying invaders as terrorists.
Supporting establishment of a fact-finding mission on Holocaust as proposed by the Tehran conference, he urged the western coutries to pledge that they will not disturb members of the team, "so that further surveys are carried out, issues are clarified, and criminals are sentenced".
"Based on the facts gained by the team, if Holocaust's truth is ruled out, root causes of problems and crimes in the Middle East region will be terminated."
He also said that results of the mission's study will put an end to the 60-year-old dispute on the issue of Holocaust and its scale.
"Sixty years after the World War Two, why are we still witnessing aftermath of this war?" Ahmadinejad questioned.
"It should be clear how long and to what extent these circumstance will go on," he told the meeting.
