Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will attend the United Nations anti-racism conference in Geneva next week.
The news increased Jewish concerns about the conference, a follow-up to the 2001 conference held in Durban which was dominated by heated rows over the Middle East.
Israel, Italy and Canada are to boycott the Geneva meeting, with Australia expected to follow suit.
Australia’s Foreign Minister Stephen Smith said it was “most unlikely” his country would attend.
