White House: Ahmadinejad's speech "predictable"

May 3, 2010 21:20

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's speech Monday at the United Nations was full of "wild accusations," the White House said.

Spokesman Robert Gibbs says Ahmadinejad's speech was predictable in failing to speak about the obligations his country has not lived up to in dealing with its nuclear program. In refusing to live up to those obligations, Gibbs says Iran is becoming further isolated in the world community.

Ahmadinejad is in New York for the state of a monthlong conference reviewing the Nuclear Nonprolifertation Treaty. He rejected allegations his country is developing nuclear weapons.
