Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has stood by his call for the establishment of an independent fact-finding committee to investigate the 9/11 attacks.
“An in-depth inquiry needs to be conducted into the incident,” said the president at a gathering in the city of Abadan in Iran’s southwestern Khuzestan Province on Monday.
“A tribunal should be set up where any [alleged] evidence and documents (on the 9/11 attacks) can be presented,” President Ahmadinejad continued.
“If those on trial are found guilty, then justice should be served on them,” he underlined.
The Iranian chief executive again underscored that the US-led invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan came under the pretext of the 9/11 incident.
“Under the same excuse, all Muslims, revolutionaries and justice-seekers around the world were accused, and the fiercest propaganda campaigns were launched against hem,” he noted.
Hundreds of thousands of innocent people have been killed in Iraq and Afghanistan so far, President Ahmadinejad highlighted.
Elsewhere in his remarks, the president said capitalism which was once seen as ‘invincible’ is on shaky ground now.
“Once, the Iranian nation was empty-handed and oppressed. However, the nation stood up to global hegemony and safeguarded its dignity with reliance on God,” said the president.
“Today, the strong waves of the Islamic Revolution (of Iran) is crushing enemy bastions,” the president said.
“Everyone knows that there is only one impenetrable stronghold to defend good and justice in the world, and that is the Iranian nation,” President Ahmadinejad concluded.
