Iran urges UN member states to reject Israeli resolution on fighting Holocaust denial

Jacob Magid is The Times of Israel's US bureau chief

Speaking immediately after Israeli Ambassador to the UN Gilad Erdan introduced a General Assembly resolution aimed at combating Holocaust denial, Iran’s representative calls on member states not to support the measure.

The Iranian representative claims Israel “routinely attempts to exploit the suffering of Jewish people in the past as cover for the crimes it has perpetrated over the past seven decades against the regional countries.”

“My delegation fully disassociates itself from the draft resolution,” the Iranian diplomat says.
