After of months of being in a limbo, U.S. officially announces that Iran’s new UN Ambassador nominee is not acceptable

The dispute over Iran’s new nominee for the United Nations started in January 2014 when press reports mentioned the name of Hamid Aboutalebi as Rouhani’s choice.  As soon as his name was mentioned,  it was reported that  Aboutalebi played a role in the hostage crisis of 1979-1981,  a sensitive period in US-Iran relations.   Iranian government made a mistake in underestimating the level of anger in the United States about how their diplomats were treated, and should have withdrawn Aboutalebi’s name earlier.
