Tehran - Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Saturday the real dimensions of the September 2001 terrorist attacks on the US as well as genocide in the Second World War should be exposed in order to be able to stop terrorism.
“If the black box of the 9/11 incident and Holocaust were opened, then some of the truth would be exposed, but the United States does not allow this,” Ahmadinejad said at the two-day international summit on terrorism in Tehran.
The president said both the Holocaust and the 2001 terror attacks were pretexts by the US to put down Muslims and at the same time make huge economic benefits by spreading panic in the region.
Ahmadinejad has often questioned what he called accepted truths.
He said the roots of terrorism should be explored before it can be fought effectively, and blamed US militarism for causing security to deteriorate. - Sapa-dpa
