Tehran, Iran, Jan. 30 – Iran invited British Prime Minister Tony Blair on Sunday to an anti-Holocaust conference it plans to hold, the state-run ISNA news agency reported.

Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Hamid-Reza Asefi told reporters during his weekly press conference, “I think that it would be good if Mr. Blair takes part in the seminar on the Holocaust in Tehran. Of course, he can make the case in support of the Holocaust and at the same time hear the points of views that he cannot listen to there”.

Hard-line Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad shocked the world when he publicly declared that the Holocaust was a “myth” and threatened that Israel must be “wiped off the map”.

His comments were supported by senior Iranian officials including Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and former president Ayatollah Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani.

Asefi said that the anti-Holocaust conference would be held in spring of this year, adding that “unanswered questions” about the scale of the Holocaust could be discussed there.

Ahmadinejad’s comments, which drew international condemnation, were twice rebuked at the United Nations Security Council.
