Biden Admin Approved Visa For Iranian Foreign Minister Because UN Wanted Them To

via Forbes Breaking News

The Biden administration approved the visa of Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, who reportedly helped plan an attack on Israel, to address the United Nations (UN) in New York City.

The State Department stated that the US is obligated to permit visas for representatives of other countries attending UN events.

The decision has faced criticism, with concerns raised about Iranian-backed terror groups holding Americans hostage and attacking US servicemembers. (Trending: Chilling Update On Biden Bribery Scheme)

White House national security spokesman John Kirby said, “The Secretary General called a meeting at the foreign ministerial level. He’s the foreign minister of Iran, we are the host of the UN, we take that responsibility seriously.”

“Do we particularly like the fact that he’s on U.S. soil? No. But unlike a lot of other countries around the world, we take those responsibilities, those rules seriously,” he continued.

“And so, we allowed him to come in to attend these meetings and we hope, quite frankly, we’re certainly gonna take advantage of the opportunity.”

“We hope others at the UN take advantage of the opportunity to ask tough questions of him and what his country’s doing to support these militia groups and what his country’s doing to support Hamas and Hezbollah,” he continued.

“This is an opportunity for world leaders up there in New York to make their perspectives and their concerns known directly to the Iranian foreign minister.” (Trending: Biden Completely Botches Iconic American Quote)

Critics argue that Amir-Abdollahian should not have been granted a visa due to his involvement in such activities.

Republican Senator Joni Ernst condemned the administration’s decision and called for an end to appeasement.
