"Mr. Secretary-General, your place is not in Tehran," Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu bluntly told UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon Friday afternoon.

The comment came at the end of a phone conversation Netanyahu had with Ban to dissuade him from attending a summit of Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) members in Tehran at the end of the month. Netanyahu said such a trip would stain both Ban and the organization he heads.
