The EU's top justice official Tuesday condemned Iran for hosting a conference of Holocaust deniers, saying it constituted "an unacceptable affront" to victims of the World War II genocide. "I want to state my firm condemnation of any attempt to deny, trivialize or minimize the Shoah, war crimes and crimes against humanity," EU Justice and Home Affairs Commissioner Franco Frattini said in a statement. He said the conference, initiated by Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, showed an "utter disregard of historically established facts" and constituted "an unacceptable affront not only to the victims of that tragedy and their descendants, but also to the whole democratic world."
