United Nations -
UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon told Iran's supreme leader and president on Wednesday that their recent anti-Israel comments were “offensive and inflammatory,” a UN spokesman said.
Ban “strongly objected” to the remarks in meetings with supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who has called Israel a “cancerous tumor”, and President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who has doubted Israel's right to exist, UN spokesman Martin Nesirky told reporters from Tehran. - Sapa-AFP
