Germany will boycott the Durban IV conference

Berlin will not attend the UN event in marking the 20th anniversary of the World Conference Against Racism in Durban, South Africa, a German diplomatic source confirmed on Sunday.

France has yet to announce its position on the conference, which it has boycotted in the past, raising questions about activists against antisemitism.

Germany will be the 10th country to boycott the September event also known as Durban IV. In the 2001 event and its subsequent review conferences, Israel was singled out for opprobrium, antisemitic materials were disseminated and participants engaged in Holocaust denial.
