Mahmoud Ahmadinejad plans again to attend this year’s summit at the United Nations in New York.
The Iranian president told state television Monday he will fly to New York in September for the annual gathering of international leaders at the U.N. General Assembly.
His speech, Ahmadinejad said, will discuss “ruling the world based on justice.”
Ahmadinejad’s attendance at the U.N. last year drew fierce protests over his statements against Israel and in denial of the Holocaust.
The Iranian president used that visit to appear at Columbia University. A year before that, he took time out from the U.N. summit to address the prestigious Council on Foreign Relations in New York.
