Milliband: Ahmadinejad's remarks 'utterly unacceptable'
Jonny Paul, Jerusalem Post Correspondent
David Milliband, Britain's foreign secretary, on Tuesday responded to Iranian President Ahmadinejad's remarks at the Durban Conference a day earlier. "President Ahmadinejad's remarks earlier today, describing Israel as a 'racist government' established on the 'pretext' of Jewish suffering, were offensive, inflammatory and utterly unacceptable," Milliband said in a statement. "That such remarks were made using the platform of the UN's anti-racism conference is all the more reprehensible. "The UK delegation, along with many others, rightly walked out of President Ahmadinejad's speech because such hate-filled rhetoric is an intolerable abuse of free speech and of the conference."
