President Bush addressed the United Nations General Assembly on the opening day of the 61st session. In his remarks he urged the world to support the forces of moderation and reform in the greater Middle East, saying he wanted to speak directly to people in the region, assuring Iraqis, Lebanese and Afghans of continued U.S. support for their efforts to build new democracies. He also addressed the Iranian people, saying that the United States ha d no objections to Iran achieving a “truly peaceful nuclear power program” and told the Iranians that he looked forward “to the day when you can live in freedom, and America and Iran can be good friends and close partners in the cause of peace.” He also urged the United Nations to act quickly to deploy a robust peacekeeping force to the war-ravaged Darfur region of Sudan, apparently over the objections of the Sudanese government. close
