US to Boycott Iran Leader's Speech at UN Summit

US to Boycott Iran Leader's Speech at UN Summit

The United States on Wednesday slammed “repulsive slurs” against Israel by Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and said it would boycott his speech at the UN General Assembly.

Ahmadinejad, whose country faces growing pressure over its nuclear program, is one of the most high-profile speakers at the UN summit on Wednesday. He has made a series of comments attacking Israel and the West while in New York.

The United States, Israel and other western nations have regularly staged protest walkouts during Ahmadinejad’s previous speeches at the United Nations.

This will be Ahmadinejad’s last appearance at the UN General Assembly as he is scheduled to stand down next year at the end of his second term as president.
