German Foreign Minister Calls Ahmadinejad 'Disgrace To Iran'

BERLIN (Reuters) -- Germany's Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier has condemned Iranian President Mahmud Ahmadinejad's latest denial of the Holocaust, calling him a disgrace to his country.

In a statement Steinmeier said: "Today's statements by the Iranian President are unacceptable. With his intolerable tirades he is a disgrace to his country. This sheer anti-Semitism demands our collective condemnation. We will continue to confront it decisively in the future."

Steinmeier's condemnation was unprecedented in its tone.
