Iran native to speak in Clinton


CLINTON – Yashar Vasef, executive director of the Iowa United Nations Association (UNA), will address the role of the United Nations (UN), the relationship between the U.S. and Iran and how the current humanitarian crisis in Syria fits into the picture of Middle East tensions.
