US orchestrated 9 /11 attacks:Ahmadinejad

American and European diplomats walked out of  the UN General Assembly  in protest after Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad  suggested  that the  US government may have orchestrated  the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks in which about 3,000 people died in the Al-Qaeda attacks by suicide bombers who hijacked jets and flew them into the World Trade Center in New York, the Pentagon in Washington .

The US mission to the United Nations furiously slammed the Iranian leader in a statement released even before Ahmadinejad had finished speaking.U.S. said that Mr. Ahmadinejad's comments were "as abhorrent and delusional as they are predictable."

 After the Iranian president speech , White House and State Department officials stressed that the Iranian president's speech didn't diminish Washington's and the international community's desire to resume direct talks with Tehran over its nuclear program."Rather than representing the aspirations and goodwill of
the Iranian people, Mr Ahmadinejad has yet again chosen to spout vile conspiracy theories and anti-Semitic slurs that are as abhorrent and delusional as they are predictable," said Mark Kornblau, spokesman for the US mission.

State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley. "We have offered engagement with Iran because we think it's in our national security interest."

Earlier Thursday, President Barack Obama used his own annual address to the gathering to promote his Mideast peace agenda, publicly pressing Israelis and Palestinians to forge an agreement within the next year.

 President Obama said that the "door remains open to diplomacy"   if Iran decides to meet its international obligations by allowing U.N. inspectors access to its nuclear facilities.
Speaking at the opening of the UN General Assembly in New York, Obama called on Iran to demonstrate that its nuclear work is solely for peaceful purposes and not designed to a acquire an atomic weapon.

"The US and the international community seek a resolution to our differences with Iran, and the door remains open to diplomacy should Iran choose to walk through it," he said.

 Ahmadinejad discussed the 9/11  theory in a characteristic  tirade,
Iranian leader  said one possible explanation for the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon is "that some segments within the U.S. government orchestrated the attack to reverse the declining American economy, and its grips on the Middle East, in order to save the Zionist regime."
“The majority of the American people as well as other nations and politicians agree with this view,” he added.

Mr. Ahmadinejad then urged the UN to carry out an investigation that would determine what happened on 9/11.

“It is proposed that the United Nations set up an independent fact-finding group for the event of September 11 so that in the future, expressing views about it is not forbidden,” he said on Thursday.

He also accused the U.S. for using 9/11 to start wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, as well as bullying Iran about its nuclear programme while maintaining it own nuclear weapons.

The Iranian leader has frequently outraged the United States and other delegations with his speeches at the UN General Assembly.
Last year it was because of his comments about the Holocaust in what the US mission then called "hateful, offensive and anti-Semitic rhetoric."
