A number of world leaders who were going to boycott the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) summit currently taking place in Tehran changed their mind when UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon announced he would attend, Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon said Monday.

Ayalon, who declined to say which leaders he was referring to, said that the argument used by these statesmen was that they could not boycott the meeting if Ban attended.

Ban is scheduled to arrive in Tehran on Wednesday to take part in the summit of some 120 countries who make up the NAM.
