U.S. urges UN chief to talk about Iran's obligations


10:43, August 23, 2012

WASHINGTON, Aug. 22 (Xinhua) -- The United States on Wednesday urged the United Nations chief and other participants of the Summit of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) in Tehran, the capital of Iran, to use the opportunity to talk about Iran's international obligations.

State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland made the comment in response to UN chief Ban Ki-moon's decision to attend the meeting, as the U.S. and Israel have urged Ban to refrain from the event and even called his trip there a "big mistake."

"Well, we've talked about our view with regard to the NAM meeting a couple of times here, including earlier this week," Nuland told reporters at a regular news briefing.

"I think I even said yesterday that we had concerns that Iran is going to manipulate this opportunity and the attendees to try to deflect attention from its own failings," she said, calling Iran a country "in violation of all kinds of UN obligations" and a destabilizing force.
