PM Harper's statement on Iran

Prime Minister's statement following remarks by President of Iran

15 April 2006
Ottawa, Ontario

Prime Minister Stephen Harper today issued the following statement following remarks made by the President of Iran:

"Canada vigorously condemns the recent call by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad for the annihilation of Israel, and his continued denial of the holocaust. The Canadian people reject the hatred that underlies such appalling and irresponsible statements.

"It is particularly disturbing that these remarks are being made at a time when Iran is in serious violation of its international obligations with respect to nuclear non-proliferation.

"Canada continues to believe that these outrageous comments by the President of Iran do not reflect the traditions and values of the Iranian people."

I couldn't agree more with Prime Minister Harper.

I am also providing a translation of his honourable's statement in Persian for my Iranian readers:

نخست وزير کانادا اظهارات توهين اميز و نفرت انگيز احمدي نژاد رييس جمهور ايران را محکوم ميکند
مردم کانادا نيز هر گونه اظهارات نفرت بر انگيز عليه اسرائيل را قويآ رد کرده
اینگونه سخنان بشدت ازار دهنده است به ويژه اينکه اين اظهارات زماني بيان ميشود که دولت ايران مشغول نقض شديد قوانين بين المللي در رابطه با منع تکثير سلاحهاي کشتار جمعي مي باشد
کانادا اعتقاد دارد که اينگونه سخنان نفرت انگيز نمايانگر ارزشها و سنتهاي ملت ايران نيست

It is about time someone else in the world realized what we already know. It still feels good to have someone in his position stand firm. Thank you.

Bravo Mr. Harper and thank you for recognizing that we are dealing with a theocratic rulers who are not only against the West but against the Iranian people and the Iranian culture. The Islamic regime is the most anti-Iranian government that Iran has had in over 2000 years.
