U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL), Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, released the following statement regarding Iran's upcoming assumption of the helm of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) at a NAM summit in Tehran. Statement by Ros-Lehtinen:
"Once again, the so-called "Non-Aligned Movement' reveals itself to be very much aligned with anti-American rogue regimes, including its upcoming head, Iran, and former heads like the Castro brothers' Cuba and Mugabe's Zimbabwe. Apparently, at the NAM, sponsoring violent extremism and pursuing illicit nuclear weapons capabilities is an asset, not a black mark.
"Iran will use its new leadership position and the upcoming NAM summit in Tehran to advance its anti-American, anti-Israel, anti-freedom agenda. Those member countries of NAM who do not buy in to this poisonous program should leave NAM, ending their association with this tool for rogue regimes."
