Iran Chairs the UN Conference on Disarmament

The United Nations reaches a new level of absurdity with the appointment of Iran over the disarmament conference.
 

Beginning on May 27 and lasting until June 23, Iran will chair the UN conference on disarmament. Yes, the UN’s most important disarming forum will be led by one of the world’s greatest threats to nuclear warfare. The ridiculous situation shows the ineffectiveness of the United Nations in preventing the spread of nuclear armaments.

While the position that Iran will occupy is largely ceremonial, it is also a very prominent position that some of Iran’s opponents, such as the United States, would rather see filled by a less confrontational nation. The U.S. plans to boycott any talks that are led by Iran in the meetings to be held in Geneva.
