The article reports that U.S. efforts to avert a close encounter between President George W. Bush and his Iranian counterpart Mahmoud Ahmadinejad at the United Nations seem so far to have been successful, but that did not stop the two leaders from exchanging verbal broadsides from the podium of the UN General Assembly. On the opening day of the sixty-first UN session, both leaders used their respective speeches to assert their contrary positions on Tehran's nuclear development program.
