The upcoming U.S. peace conference is a â€œtrap,â€ Iranâ€™s president said.
Speaking to his Cabinet, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Sunday evening that the conference on Palestinian statehood scheduled for next month in Annapolis, is â€œa trap set by the Zionistsâ€ and will not benefit the Palestinians, according to the Iranian news agency IRNA.
Ahmadinejad said that Israel, which he calls the â€œZionist regime,â€ is on the verge of collapse. He added that Israelâ€™s allies could not be fair mediators.
