Ayatollah Khamenei: Boycott Annapolis

Supreme leader of Iran urges boycott of Mideast talks

The Iranian supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, on Saturday called for all Muslim countries to boycott an American-sponsored meeting for Middle East peace that is planned for late November.

"Efforts are being made to once again make an imposition on the Palestinian people in the name of peace," said Ayatollah Khamenei in a sermon marking the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, giving it special significance. "The result of all conferences held in the name of peace so far have been to the detriment of the Palestinian nation." He said that the aim of the meeting "is to rescue the Zionist regime," meaning Israel.
