Ahmadinejad Set to Visit New York

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad underlined that a consensus among the 5+1 member states could not dissuade him from taking the trip to New York and defending the rights of the Iranian nation at the UN Security Council. “In case the US administration issues my entry visa, I will definitely attend the UN Security Council meeting to defend Iran’s nuclear rights,” the president told FNA after a visit to Iran’s central province of Yazd on Friday.

“I do not view any probable consensus among the member states of the group 5+1 as a deterrent to this trip and I do stress the need for my presence at the UN Security Council meet,” Ahmadinejad continued.
