ddressing the U.N. General Assembly for the eighth time, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said that Iran finds itself under threat from "hegemonic powers" seeking to impose their views on his country. "A state of mistrust has cast its shadow on the international relations, whilst there is no trusted or just authority to help resolve world conflicts," he said, alluding to America's criticism of Iran for failing to help end the deadly conflict in Syria. The U.S. delegation decided not to sit for Ahmadinejad's speech because the Iranian leader is once again using "his trip to the U.N. not to address the legitimate aspirations of the Iranian people, but to instead spout paranoid theories and repulsive slurs against Israel," said Erin Pelton, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Mission to the United Nations.
