Congressmen Urge UN to Block Iran from Heading Nuclear Disarmament Panel


congressMore than 70 members of Congress have called on UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon to remove Iran from its role as host of the UN Conference on Disarmament, which opened on May 27, in light of Tehran’s illicit pursuit of nuclear arms.

“In what parallel universe could Iran – a world leader in weapons proliferation and terror financing – be taken seriously leading the charge for nuclear disarmament?” said Rep. Peter Roskam (R-Ill.).

“It’s outrageous that a country that refuses to abide by any international proliferation agreements – as it continues its own illicit pursuit for nuclear weapons – is chairing a conference on disarmament,” said Rep. Ted Deutch (D-Fla.).

  1. Although some peopole may be suprosed that Iran is being elected to head this department, actually this is not news at all! Considering that NORTH KOREA was the previous leaders of the disarmament panel. Oh and if that is not enough, until two years ago Libya was the head of the UN human rights council.
    You couldn’t make this stuff up!
