MKs Walk Out on Iranian Speech at NATO Meeting


Knesset members Aryeh Eldad (National Union) and Nachman Shai (Kadima) walked out of a meeting of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization's working group on the Middle East and North Africa Monday morning, when Deputy Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Ahani addressed the group.

Dr. Shai told the participants, "To host a representative of Iran, a nation that forcefully suppresses any sign of democracy or struggle for freedom is an insult to the international community, to NATO and to Israel."
