Iran's Ahmadinejad meets UN General Assembly President in Tehran

TEHRAN, March 9 (Xinhua) -- Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad met UN General Assembly President Miguel d'Escoto Brockmann here on Monday, Iran's presidential website reported.

"Iran's president and UN General Assembly President met this evening and exchanged views on the important regional and international issues," the website said.

Ahmadinejad highlighted the necessity of basic changes in the world's situation and pointed out that "All have to do attempts to remove the blocks and to do changes in the world on the basis of spirituality, justice, morality and humanity."

For his part, d'Escoto referred to Iran's important and influential role in the improvement of the world's situation and pointed out that "(We) have to do attempts to improve the condition of the human beings and to remove poverty in the world."

Earlier on Monday, Miguel d'Escoto Brockmann, addressing the Iranian foreign ministry's international and political studies center, said that "the major problem of the United Nations is the lack of cooperation on the side of the U.S. with the world body," according to semi-official Fars news agency's report.

"When the UN was established, it had two major goals. One of them was avoiding wars and the other one was establishing peace and security," he said.

"Now, the five permanent members of the UN Security Council have blocked establishment of peace and security, because of their(overwhelming) authority."

Brockmann, who is on his first and six-day visit to Iran, is to attend a summit of the Economic Cooperation Organization (ECO) in Tehran on Wednesday.
