Iran’s Ahmadinejad cancels trip to AU summit

By on July 1, 2009

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s trip to an African Union summit in Libya has been cancelled, his office told Reuters on Wednesday, without giving any reason.

“The president’s visit to the summit that was supposed to start on Wednesday has been cancelled,” said a presidential office spokesman.

Ahmadinejad was scheduled to join the summit of African leaders, which is set to get underway in Libya, to investigate Agricultural investment in Africa.

The president hailed on Tuesday his re-election as a victory for the Iranian people and a defeat for the Islamic Republic’s enemies.

Iran’s top legislative body confirmed on Monday he had won the June 12 election by a landslide and dismissed complaints of irregularities submitted by his defeated pro-reform opponents.
