Security Council Condemns Iran President's Remarks

Security Council Condemns Iranian President's Remarks On Israel

Members of the United Nations Security Council today condemned remarks against Israel made earlier this week by Iran's President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

President Ahmadinejad reportedly called for Israel to be wiped off the map in comments that drew immediate criticism from Secretary-General Kofi Annan on Thursday.

In a statement to the press today on the Council's behalf, the current President of the 15-member body, Ambassador Mihnea Ioan Motoc of Romania, supported the views of the Secretary-General, who had noted that under the UN Charter, "all members have undertaken to refrain from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of any State."
