President @HassanRouhani tells me he accepts the Holocaust - was a great crime against Jews by the Nazis. Condemns that and all genocides.
1. Rouhani made the comments in an interview with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour during a visit to New York where he spoke to the United Nations General Assembly.
“I am not a historian, and when it comes to speaking of the dimensions of the Holocaust it is the historians that should reflect,” Rouhani said.
“But in general I can tell you that any crime that happens in history against humanity, including the crime the Nazis created towards the Jews, is reprehensible and condemnable,” he said, according to CNN’s translation.
