The United States said Monday it has drafted a UN General Assembly resolution condemning the denial of the Holocaust. According to a copy of the draft made available to The Associated Press, the proposed resolution urges all member states "to reject any denial of the Holocaust as a historical event," saying that "ignoring the historical fact of these terrible events increases the risk they will be repeated." The draft resolution does not single out any specific country for criticism. The draft, which the US said it planned to circulate to General Assembly members Monday, comes a month after Iran hosted a conference of 67 writers and researchers from 30 countries, most of whom argued that either the Holocaust did not happen or that it was vastly exaggerated.
