Iranian president off to New York

Sun, 21 Sep 2008

Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has left Tehran for New York to participate in the 63rd annual session of the UN General Assembly. Ahmadinejad plans to deliver a speech at the session on September 23. During his speech, Ahmadinejad is expected to demand that UN member states condemn Israeli crimes against Palestinians and call for appropriate measures to be adopted against Tel Aviv. The Iranian president will also push for Iran's membership at the UN Security Council. Iran is seeking to gain the support of Muslim states and its allies in the Non-Aligned Movement to win a non-permanent seat on the council. The seat, currently held by Indonesia, is reserved for an Asian nation. It becomes vacant in January, but is also sought by Japan. Press TV
