Ahmadinejad Will Meet With Democrat-Endorsed #Occupy Protesters This Week
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will meet with members of the Democrat-endorsed #Occupy Wall Street during his visit to New York this week.
The Hindu reported:
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has left for the U.S. to pursue a crowded agenda that focuses on connecting with mainstream Americans including those who are part of the Occupy Wall Street movement.
For a seventh successive year, the Iranian President will address the General Assembly session, which commences on September 25. Mr. Ahmadinejad will also represent the 120-nation Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) as its rotating President.
But apart from rubbing shoulders with world leaders, Mr. Ahmadinejad has public diplomacy prominently in his sights. Not only would he meet activists of the Occupy Wall Street movement, he will also engage with American university students, artists and intellectuals. Mr. Ahmadinejad also plans to reach out to the public through interviews with CBS and CNN television networks as well with the Russia Today satellite channel.
Ahmadinejad told reporters today Israel has “no roots” in the history of the Middle East and represents a disturbance for Iran.
