Ahmadinejad: Iran will never recognize 'Zionist regime' [Excerpts]
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad spoke to a group of Muslim figures in New York [September 20, 2010], saying that "The Iranian nation will never recognize the Zionist regime," Fars News Agency reported on Tuesday.
Ahmadinejad went on to reiterate Iranian support for the Palestinians, as well as the Lebanese.
"Palestinians can cut the hands of the aggressor and put an end to the Zionist regime's presence in the region," he reportedly said.
The Iranian president's remarks were reportedly met with the applause of his audience. Ahamadinejad is visiting New York to attend the UN's General Assembly meetings, taking place this week.
