联合国秘书长潘基文计划下星期前往伊朗,出席不结盟国家的一次会议,同时美国和以色列都对此表示反对,认为潘基文的访问将发出一个错误的信息。

潘基文的发言人内西尔基星期三宣布了潘基文将前往伊朗的消息。他说,潘基文将传达国际社会对伊朗核项目、恐怖主义、人权以及叙利亚危机等问题的关注。

内西尔基说,潘基文了解此行的敏感性质,但如果拒绝出访,就将错过一个机会。

美国表示,担心伊朗会利用主持这次拥有120个成员国的不结盟运动峰会的机会,转移对其失败的注意力。


United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon plans to travel to Iran next week for a meeting of non-aligned nations, amid objections from the United States and Israel which say the visit sends a bad signal.

Mr. Ban's spokesman, Martin Nesirky, announced the trip Wednesday.  He says the U.N. chief will convey the international community's concerns and expectations about Iran's nuclear program, terrorism, human rights and the crisis in Syria.

Nesirky says Mr. Ban is aware of the sensitive nature of his visit, but that boycotting would be a "missed opportunity."

The United States says it is concerned Iran will use its turn to host the 120-member group to "deflect attention from its own failings."
