UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon touted the "crucially important role" Iran has to play in the region Wednesday after touching down in Tehran for the Non-Aligned Movement summit.

"Iran has a very important role, a crucially important role to play in the region, particularly when it comes to a civilian situation," Ban said. "I am going to discuss this matter with the supreme leader and the president and other leaders."
