EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton on Thursday condemned Iranian first Vice President Mohammad Reza Rahimi for a speech he gave at a UN conference in Tehran earlier this week in which he blamed Jews for controlling the international drug trade.

"The High Representative is deeply disturbed by racist and anti-Semitic statements made by Iranian First Vice-President Mohammad Reza Rahimi at the UN International Day against Drug Abuse," Ashton stated.
