Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has renewed his call to establish an independent fact-finding committee on the 9/11 incident, urging trial of those who engineered the event.
“Plotters of the September 11 incident should be brought to trial. While regional nations knew nothing about the event, yet countries were occupied [because of it],” IRNA quoted President Ahmadinejad as saying in a press conference in the Azeri capital of Baku on Thursday.
“A fact-finding committee which is trusted by nations should investigate the 9/11 event,” he added.
The president emphasized that if US statesmen truly possess firm documents about what happened during the incident, as they claim, they should not fear the establishment of a fact-finding committee and can produce their evidence to the body for a probe.
The Iranian chief executive went on to add, “If it is proved that such crimes were carried out by those who have presence in our region, regional countries and nations will duly punish them by themselves.”
