After Two Year Run, New York’s Warwick Hotel Will Not Host Iranian Delegation for September UN GA Visit

New York City’s Warwick Hotel will not count the Iranian delegation among its guests during this year’s United Nations General Assembly, breaking a controversial two-year run of playing host to the Islamic State’s official representatives.

United Against a Nuclear Iran, an advocacy group that works to persuade companies against doing business with Iran in an effort to dissuade the country from pursuing its ambition to obtain nuclear weapons, has lobbied the hotel in past years to have the delegation refused accommodation, and said on Tuesday it was pleased by the news.
