London, Dec. 15 – Russian on Thursday added its voice to the international community’s in condemning as “unacceptable” remarks by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad who claimed on Wednesday that the Holocaust was a “myth”.

Ahmadinejad said Wednesday the Holocaust was a “myth” that Europeans had used to create a Jewish state in the heart of the Islamic world, and called for Jews to be moved from the Middle East to Europe, the United States, Canada, or Alaska.

“The Europeans say that during the Second World War six million Jews were killed, and they are determined in their claims to the point that even when scientists question them they deal with such scientists and jail and punish them”, he added.

“We consider attempts to revise the well-known historical facts of World War II, in particular, those associated with the Holocaust, unacceptable. That’s why Russia became a cosponsor of the recently adopted UN General Assembly resolution, which contains a call upon all states to resist attempts at denying this crime of the Nazis”, a statement released by the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs said.

“Russia regards Israel as a sovereign state having the right to live in peace and security side by side with its neighbours, including an independent Palestinian state”.

“Speculations on this theme run counter to the principles of the Charter of the United Nations and the opinion of the international community”.

In Strasbourg, British Minister for Europe Douglas Alexander, on Wednesday, said, “The comments are wholly unacceptable and we condemn them unreservedly. They have no place in civilised political debate”. Britain currently holds the EU’s rotating presidency.

U.S. State Department spokesman Sean McCormack characterised Ahmadinejad’s remarks as “outrageous”. “These comments are certainly reprehensible and all it does is to further isolate the Iranian government from the international community and, I would expect, from the Iranian people. President Ahmadinejad started digging himself a diplomatic hole with his speech before the United Nations. I don’t think he stopped digging. It is just astounding to see the kind of comments coming from the President of Iran that we see”.

“This shows the nature of the regime. With the great respect I have for that country, that people, the great history of that country, I say they do not have the president, or the regime, they deserve”, European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso told reporters, the Associated Press reported from Strasbourg.
