Ahmadinejad urges UN to play its principal role in world management

TEHRAN, Sept. 19 (MNA) – President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has called on the United Nations to fulfill its principal role in management of the world.

Ahmadinejad made the remarks early on Sunday upon his arrival at J.F. Kennedy Airport in New York to attend the 65th United Nations General Assembly session.

He was received by Iranian envoy to the UN Mohammad Khazaei, and a number of other diplomats.

The UN must provide all nations with equal opportunities so that they can play their role in the world management, the president underlined.

He added justice and security cannot be realized unless all nations feel responsible in this regard.

Ahmadinejad is scheduled to deliver a speech at the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) summit (September 20 to 22), and the UN General Assembly session (September 23 to 30), as well as the World Forum for Proximity of Islamic Schools of Thought summit.

He will also do interviews with U.S. media outlets and meet U.S. scholars and Iranian expatriates during his week-long stay in New York.

The presidential chief of staff, ministers of foreign affairs, culture and Islamic guidance, cooperatives, IRIB director, head of Tourism and Handicrafts Organization, and two senior advisors to the president are accompanying Ahmadinejad in the visit.
