      UN Chief to Attend ‘Non-Aligned’ Gathering in Tehran



      United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon has arrived in Tehran for the 16th summit of the Non-Aligned Movement. The United States and Israel had called for Ban not to attend. “We have no doubt that the Iranian regime will use the conference to cover up its crimes,” Israeli officials told Bloomberg.

      A spokesman for Ban said the UN leader will raise concerns over Iran’s unchecked nuclear program and its interference in Syria with the country’s leaders.
