Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad wrote U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon ahead of the nuclear summit in Washington on Monday and asked him to condemn the United States and NATO for supporting anti-Iranian terrorists in the region. The Iranian leader also asked Ban Ki-moon to set up a U.N. fact-finding mission to probe abuses by Western forces in Afghanistan and Iraq.
The letter appeared calculated to draw attention to alleged Western military excesses in the Middle East as U.S. President Barack Obama convened a large gathering of world leaders in Washington aimed in part at putting up pressure on countries like Iran and North Korea to stop their own nuclear programs.
Ahmadinejad signaled out the case of Abdul Malik Rigi, the jailed leader of Jundallah, a Pakistan-based militant group that claims to be fighting on behalf of Sunni Muslims in southeast Iran. The group is believed to have killed hundreds of Iranian troops and civilians since 2003. Ahmadinejad wrote that Rigi has confessed to Iranian intelligence officials that he has received support from NATO powers. Iran has previously claimed that Britain, Israel, and the United States supported his cause.
