Following are excerpts from an address given by Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Hamid-Reza Asefi, which aired on the Iranian News Channel (IRINN) on January 29, 2006.
Hamid-Reza Asefi: Mr. Blair should participate in the Holocaust seminar in Tehran. He should come here, and say and hear what he cannot say or hear in London. He could even submit a paper. If he wants to defend the Holocaust, he should certainly submit a paper. We will allocate him time to come to our seminar on the Holocaust, and to participate, so that others will be able to hear his views.
