IRAN-HOLOCAUST
Iran's hard-line lawmakers grill foreign minister on deflection from Holocaust denial

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Tuesday, May 6, 2014 4:51 AM EDT
TEHRAN, Iran


Hard-line lawmakers have grilled Iran's foreign minister on the official Tehran's step-back from past policies of denying the Holocaust.

Mohammad Javad Zarif was summoned to parliament and questioned in a session that was broadcast live on state radio on Tuesday.

Zarif said that as long as he is foreign minister he will not allow Iran's reputation to be damaged with statements about the "Holocaust denial."

Former President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in 2005 prompted an international outcry when he called the Holocaust a "myth."

His successor, Hassan Rouhani, a moderate, has offered outreach in place of saber-rattling and Holocaust denial.

The summoning and grilling of Zarif is apparently part of the hard-liners' increasing pressures on the Rouhani administration.

After the questioning, the hard-line legislators said they were "satisfied" with Zarif's "explanation."
