The United States has granted a visa to Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, allowing him to travel to New York to address the UN Security Council as it considers new sanctions against Teheran over its nuclear program. "It has been approved," State Department spokesman Sean McCormack told reporters Monday. The move, which had been expected, comes after world powers agreed in principle to a new package of sanctions and Iran sought to speak to the Council before members vote on a resolution to impose the new measures for refusing to suspend uranium enrichment.
