The OIAC’s mandate is to promote human rights and democratic freedoms for Iranians. They believe in a democratic secular government with religious tolerance. The host of this event in New York finds it their goal to coordinate the Iranian-American communities inside the United States towards reaching its mandate.
Present at this important gathering is Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, General James L. Jones, Jr, Bernard Kouchner, and Giulio Terzi. They have all been long supporting actors for Iran’s uprising. The timing of the New York event is perfect as world state powers will arrive for the General Assembly meeting.
• President Trump will speak about Iran, when he addresses the United Nations next week
"It is time for us to have a real discussion [about Iran] and that’s is what you will see the president do when he chairs the Security Council," Nikki Haley told Fox News on September 20.
"It will be the most watched Security Council meeting ever, I'm sure," she added.
Trump will address the General Assembly's 193 member nations at the official opening on September 25 and the next day chair a Security Council meeting focusing on Iran, nonproliferation, and chemical weapons attacks in Syria and Britain.
“With Iran, he does not think we should turn away. He does not think we should let our focus go away. He thinks they’re dangerous. He thinks there are issues, and he thinks the international community has to take that into account,” she told Fox.
• IRAN OIL CRISIS: Japan and India BLOCK Iran oil loading ahead of US sanctions
JAPAN’s oil refiners have temporarily halted Iranian oil loadings ahead of U.S. sanctions and are buying alternatives as it remains unclear whether Japan will receive an exemption, the head of the country's refinery association said on Thursday.
India's Chennai Petroleum will also stop processing Iranian crude oil from October to keep its insurance coverage once new sanctions by the sanctions go into effect, three sources familiar with the issue said.
The US has demanded that nations cut all their Iranian oil imports when sanctions on the country's petroleum sector over Tehran's nuclear programme are re-imposed on November 4.
