Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton says it’s clear that Iran is in violation of a treaty designed to prevent the spread of nuclear weapons.
The UN is holding a conference this coming week on the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and Iran’s president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, is expected to address delegates ahead of Clinton on Monday.
Clinton tells NBC’s Meet the Press that his trip is an effort to divert attention and confuse people about Iran’s violation of the treaty.
She says the UN conference is designed to make clear the global commitment to disarmament, peaceful nuclear energy and limiting the spread of nuclear weapons.
Meanwhile, talking about Afghanistan she said she expected some reconciliation between those fighting there, but doubted that US foes will be willing to set aside differences.
