US to block Iran's UN ambassador

Monday - 4/21/2014, 10:30am EDT

President Barack Obama signed legislation Friday to block Iran's chosen ambassador from coming into the country to work at the United Nations because of his ties to the 1979 takeover of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran. But according to the Associate Press, the President says he's only treating the legislation as guidance. It bars anyone from entering the U.S. as a U.N. representative if they've engaged in espionage or terrorist activity and still pose a threat to U.S. security.
