An upcoming US-sponsored Middle East parley is "a trap set by the Zionists" for regional states, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Sunday evening. Addressing a cabinet session, the president said the conference, expected to be held in the United States late November, would not serve the interest of the Palestinian nation. Ahmadinejad's statements were quoted by Iranian news agency IRNA. Referring to the conference as the 'autumn peace conference', Ahmadinejad cautioned regional countries against being deceived. "The regional states should be careful not to be trapped by organizers of the conference and not to prepare grounds for enemies to take advantage of such an opportunity for their own ends," he said. "The Zionist regime is on the verge of collapse and that is why enemies are conducting such a conference to give the regime a chance to refresh its spirit." "Making any decision about Palestine without the presence of the Palestinian nation will never end up resolving the crisis," Ahmadinejad added. "The time is over now to decide about the Palestinian nation in their absence. As an international issue, the issue of Palestine should be solved by their direct participation and with their presence." "Those who established the Zionist regime and support this fake regime could by no means play a role in solving the question of Palestine or play the role of a mediator," Ahmadinejad was quoted as saying.
