Ahmadinejad: Netanyahu Assassin; US, Israel Nukes Threat to World

23/09/2010 Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says the Israeli prime minister is a professional assassin, who should be tried for his crimes against the people of Palestine.

"[Benjamin] Netanyahu should be tried in court for blockading Gaza and massacring innocent Palestinian women and children," Ahmadinejad said in an interview with CNN's Larry King on Wednesday.

"Netanyahu is a professional assassin. All dictators in history accuse others to turn the spotlight away from themselves," the Iranian president said when asked about the Israeli prime minister's worries about Iran.
"It is questionable [why] American media feel responsible for this person (Netanyahu)," Ahmadinejad said, adding that "you (American media) are afraid of Netanyahu's warmongering."

The Iranian president said the US and Israel's nuclear weapons are the main threat to the world, and they are mistaken to think they can divert attention from this issue by using propaganda campaigns and spreading lies about others.
"Iran is firmly after the nuclear disarmament of the US and Israel."

Ahmadinejad added that “Israel is an illegitimate regime" and an "occupier" and that the US easily starts wars and massacres people, "they are not qualified to have nuclear weapons and should be disarmed as soon as possible."

The Iranian president also warned against rising conspiracies against independent Muslim governments and nations.

"Muslim countries should further strengthen their bonds and interactions to counter enemy plots," he said in a meeting with Mauritania's Prime Minister Moulaye Ould Mohamed Laghdaf in New York on Wednesday.

The Mauritanian premier, for his part, stressed that expansion of bilateral cooperation with the Islamic Republic in a variety of fields would open new prospects in ties between the two countries.

Meanwhile, in a meeting with Turkish President Abdullah Gul, the Iranian chief executive expressed hope that Turkey would establish a new balanced mechanism at the UN Security Council during the country's rotating presidency of the council to restore rights of nations.

Gul called for enhanced ties with Iran, aiming to serve the interests of both nations as well as the region.

In a separate meeting, the Iranian president also exchanged views with Brazilian Foreign Minister Celso Amorim on leading regional and international developments.

The Iranian president also met with Ecuadorian Foreign Minister Fander Falconi and discussed ways to expand mutual ties.
