Ahmadinejad Says the US Tried to Kidnap & Assassinate Him
But the enemies failed in their wicked plots.
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad accused the United States and its allies of plotting to assassinate him during a visit to neighboring Iraq in March.
Iraqi news service Aswat Al-Iraq reported:
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad revealed that he was in possession of documented information about an attempt by “enemies” to kidnap and assassinate him during a visit he had paid to Iraq early last March.
“I’ve refused during my visit to Iraq to reside in the U.S.-protected green zone,” Iran’s Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) quoted Ahmadinejad as saying on Thursday evening.
“The enemies have planned to kidnap and assassinate me but thank God I’ve changed my visit schedule, and when they have found out I had been already out of Iraq,” said the Iranian president.
Ahmadinejad had arrived in the Iraqi capital Baghdad in early March for a two-day visit, the first ever by an Iranian president since the outbreak of the 1979 Islamic revolution in Iran. He met with Iraqi President Jalal Talabani and Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki.
Let’s hope the US presses the Iranians to see “the documented information” in question.
