Iran's new president plans New York trip despite U.S. inquiry

Iran’s ultra-conservative President-elect Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will be heading to New York in mid-September to take part in the opening ceremonies of the General Assembly of the United Nations, a semi-official Iranian news agency reported on Friday.

Fars News Agency said that Iran’s hard-line Majlis (Parliament) Speaker Gholam-Ali Haddad-Adel would be going to New York about a week in advance of Ahmadinejad’s planned trip.

Ahmadinejad is expected to address the UN General Assembly to reject suspicions that Iran’s nuclear program is geared to produce nuclear weapons.

News of the planned visits comes a day after White House spokesman Scott McClellan told reporters that Iran's president-elect was a leader in the student movement that organised the 1979 United States embassy siege and that the U.S. was still determining whether he was a hostage-taker himself.
