This week, the United States allowed Iran’s foreign minister to travel to New York City and speak at the United Nations. Critics reacted with anger that the Biden Administration should not have permitted him to enter.
Sen. Joni Ernst, R-Iowa, wrote on the social media platform X that the Biden administration had granted a Visa to a senior Iranian official, welcoming this regime with open arms in the United States.
She said, “The appeasement must end.”
Hossein Amirabdollahian was due to arrive in New York for a U.N. Security Council meeting on Monday. He was not at the meeting, but he arrived in New York last night.
A State Department spokesperson stated that, “As host nation of the U.N., the United States is generally obligated under the U.N. Headquarters Agreement to issue visas to representatives of U.N. member states to travel to the U.N. headquarters district.”
