Sayyed Khamenei, Ahmadinejad Denounce Annapolis Summit


"Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution and Chief Commander of the Armed Forces Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei on Monday denounced a US-sponsored conference in Annapolis, saying the meeting will bring about nothing for the Palestinians. The aim of the conference is to "give assistance to the occupying regime" of Israel, the leader said of the ongoing efforts by the White House which Sayyed Khamenei described as "the Black House".......

Moreover, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told Saudi King Abdullah that he "wished" the kingdom was not taking part in a US-hosted conference for settlement in the Middle East, state media reported Monday. "I wish the name of Saudi Arabia was not among those attending the Annapolis conference," Ahmadinejad was quoted as telling Abdullah in a telephone conversation late Sunday, according to the IRNA agency.

"Arab countries should be watchful in the face of the plots and deception of the Zionist enemy," he added. "The US government, which is an accomplice to Zionist crimes, cannot play the role of savior by hosting the Annapolis conference," he continued. More than a dozen Arab countries, including Saudi Arabia and Syria, are to send representatives. Saudi Foreign Minister Saud al-Faisal said he had been "reluctant" to join the conference but agreed to go so as not to break Arab consensus........"
