NEW YORK, N.Y. — Diplomats from Canada are among those who walked out on Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as the Iranian president took the podium today at the UN General Assembly.
The Canadian delegation also walked out on the controversial leader’s speech last year.
Canada’s controversial decision to cut diplomatic ties with Iran has elevated tensions between the two countries.
In the past, Ahmadinejad has used the UN spotlight to attack Israel, cast doubt on the Holocaust and question American accounts of the 9-11 attacks.
