Congressman Eliot Engel (D-NY-17) released the following statement in response to Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s appearance at the United Nations today. Rep. Engel is a senior member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee.
“Iran is a pariah nation led by a leader who has called for Israel to be wiped off the map. There is no place for such a tyrant in New York City. The world must stand against this ugliness at every turn, whether it’s Iran’s nuclear weapons program, its backing of the murderous Syrian regime in Damascus, or its support for terrorism around the world.”
