Reuters - Romney Urges U.N. to Bar Iranian President
"U.S. Republican candidate Mitt Romney urged the United Nations on Monday to revoke an invitation for Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to speak next week, and said the Iranian leader should be indicted for war crimes.
"In a letter to U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, the former Massachusetts governor said Washington should reconsider support for the world body if Ahmadinejad addresses the U.N. General Assembly on September 25, as scheduled.
"'The Iranian regime under President Ahmadinejad has spoken openly about wiping Israel off the map, has fueled Hezbollah's terror campaign in the region and around the world, and defied the world community in its pursuit of nuclear weapons,' Romney wrote in the one-page letter.
"'If President Ahmadinejad sets foot in the United States, he should be handed an indictment under the Genocide Convention,' Romney said."
