Kohl dementiert

Vor einigen Tagen wurde berichtet, dass Helmut Kohl dem iranischen Präsidenten Ahmadinejad zugestimmt hätte. Der Holocaust, soll Kohl einer iranischen Zeitung zufolge gesagt haben, sei ein "Mythos". Nun dementiert Kohl. Auch wenn es unwahrscheinlich ist, dass Helmut Kohl solche Dinge in aller Öffentlichkeit von sich gibt, wird man nie genau wissen was der ehemalige Kanzler nun wirklich gesagt hat.

London, Mar. 08 – Former German Chancellor Helmut Kohl denied a report in a semi-official Iranian daily picked up by Iran Focus which accused him of agreeing with statements made by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on the Holocaust, according to a statement received from the former chancellor’s office.

In an email to Iran Focus on Wednesday, Lutz Stroppe, the head of the office of the former chancellor, wrote that Kohl “rejects firmly” the quotation from a government-owned daily in Iran. Jomhouri Islami wrote in its Monday edition that at a dinner gala with Iranian hoteliers and entrepreneurs, Kohl had said that he “heartily agreed” with Ahmadinejad’s remark that the Holocaust was a “myth”.
