UNITED NATIONS — The United States has drafted a U.N. resolution condemning the denial of the Holocaust, a spokesman said Monday, a month after Iran provoked widespread anger by holding a conference casting doubt on the Nazi genocide of Jews during World War II.

According to a copy of the draft made available to The Associated Press, the proposed resolution urges all member states to “reject any denial of the Holocaust,” saying that “ignoring the historical fact of these terrible events increases the risk they will be repeated.”

The draft resolution “condemns without any reservation any denial of the Holocaust,” but doesn’t single out any specific country for criticism. The U.S. said it planned to circulate the draft to General Assembly members on Monday.

The December conference in Tehran gathered 67 writers and researchers from 30 countries, most of whom argue that either the Holocaust did not happen or that it was vastly exaggerated. It was backed by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who has called the Holocaust a “myth” and said Israel should be “wiped off the map.”

Richard Grenell, spokesman for the U.S. mission to the U.N., said the draft resolution was being circulated ahead of the U.N.’s International Day of Commemoration in memory of victims of the Holocaust on Jan. 27.
