Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is scheduled to meet with the U.N. Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) Review Conference today where he will submit nuclear reform proposals, according to Fars News Agency.

Several American Jewish groups and the World Jewish Congress have called on U.N. officials to walk out when Ahmadinejad takes the podium, according to Arutz Sheva, IsraelNationalNews.com.

Speaking on MSNBC’s “Meet the Press,” Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Iran is trying to divert attention from its lack of compliance with nonproliferation requirements. Clinton said, “They have violated the terms of the NPT. …So we’re not going to permit Iran to try to change the story from their failure to comply,” thereby upsetting international efforts to adopt a strong Security Council resolution, “that imposes consequences for their [Iran’s] behavior.”
