Biden Urged to Deny Iranian President Visa after Assassination Plot
After an Iranian soldier plotted to assassinate a U.S. official, many are calling on Biden to take a harder stance on Iran.
From Fox News. Former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley is calling on the Biden administration to deny a visa for the Iranian president to travel to attend the United Nations General Assembly next month — after it emerged that Iranian operatives had plotted to kill top U.S. officials.
Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi is seeking a visa to attend the gathering of world leaders in New York next month. But after the Justice Department announced charges against an Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) member for an alleged plot to kill former national security advisor John Bolton, Haley says that request must be denied.
“The world’s leading state sponsor of terror attempted to assassinate American officials inside our country,” Haley said in a statement to Fox News Digital. “Under no circumstances should the Biden administration allow Raisi to set foot in our country….”
“It is not just me,” Bolton said in an interview with Fox News Digital this week. “The regime in Tehran has targeted a lot of Americans….”
Haley has been a frequent critic of the Biden administration’s stance on Iran, particularly its moves to re-enter the 2015 Iran nuclear deal — from which the Trump administration withdrew. Last month, she said that the pursuit of a renewed deal was “a slap in the face to Israel and our Arab allies, and dangerous for America.”
