Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad issued a letter to the UN calling for a fact-finding team to conduct an investigation into the goals and intents of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, which he says have only harmed people in the region. Iran has accused Pakistan, the U.K. and the U.S. of backing Jundollah, a Sunni Islamist network that Iran links to al-Qaida. The office of UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon received the letter but did not offer comment.
