Jason Greenblatt, US president’s Mideast peace envoy, met with Mohammad Al-Issa, Secretary General of the Saudi-based Muslim World League, to discuss current dynamics in the Middle East. "Greenblatt joined Dr. Al Issa "in declaring the importance of speaking out against and condemning those who deny the Holocaust or distort its historical record," a White House spokesperson said.

A statement added that they they also reaffirmed the principles that Dr. Al Issa previously described in his January 2018 letter to the US Holocaust Memorial Museum. Specifically, they reaffirmed Secretary General Dr. Al Issa’s statement: “the Holocaust, an incident that shook humanity to the core, and created an event whose horrors could not be denied or underrated by any fair-minded or peace-loving person.”

They also reaffirmed Dr. Al Issa’s statement that “One would ask who in his right mind would accept, sympathize, or even diminish the extent of this brutal crime.”
