UN chief invites Iranian President to attend general assembly meeting in September

TEHRAN (FNA)- United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon invited Iranian President Hassan Rouhani to participate in the annual meeting of the UN General Assembly in September.

In a phone conversation with the Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on Saturday, the UN chief congratulated Zarif on his success to win the Iranian parliament’s vote of confidence, and invited officially the Iranian president to partake in the annual meeting of the United Nations General Assembly which will be held in New York in September.

The 67th Session of the United Nations General Assembly, held in New York late in September 2012, was attended by former Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Early in August, Rouhani took the oath of office in the Iranian parliament one day after being endorsed by Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei.
