Bush says Iranian president to be given US visa for UN meetings
WASHINGTON, Aug. 11 (Xinhuanet) -- US President George W. Bush said on Thursday that Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will be given a US visa to
attend the United Nations General Assembly meetings in New York next month.
"We have an agreement with the United Nations to allow people to come to meet, and I suspect he (Ahmadinejad) will be here to meet at the United
Nations," Bush said in a speech at his hometown Crawford, Texas.
However, the United States is still investigating allegations that the Iranian president took part in the 1979 hostage-taking at the US embassy in
Teheran, Bush said.
I thought Bush was strong on terror, I guess not anymore.
