Former London Mayor Ken Livingstone says he’s sorry for causing a disruption with his claim that Adolf Hitler supported Zionism early in his political career – but not sorry for saying so.

He said Saturday that he had only made a ”statement of fact” concerning Hitler that had been seized on by his political enemies to stir up trouble.

Livingstone has been suspended from Labour’s National Executive Council because of his comments and party leader Jeremy Corbyn has launched an independent inquiry into anti-Semitism and other forms of racism in the party.

The uproar over Livingstone’s comments has unsettled Labour backers ahead of Thursday’s elections, which include choosing a new London mayor.

Livingstone, a close ally of Corbyn, predicted he would ultimately be restored to his executive position.
