Posted by Orrin Judd at September 6, 2013 1:51 PMZarif's comments came in a twitter exchange with Christine Pelosi, the daughter of US House of Representatives Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi.In response to a tweet in which Zarif wished Jews a "Happy Rosh Hahshanah" on the occasion of the Jewish new year, Pelosi tweeted: "Thanks. The new year would be even sweeter if you would end Iran's Holocaust denial, sir."Zarif replied that "Iran never denied it. the man who did is now gone. happy new year." The tweet apparently referred to Ahmadinejad, who denied the Holocaust on repeated occasions.
