Iran General Urges New UN Pick         04/19 09:36

   TEHRAN, Iran (AP) -- A senior Iranian military official has urged the 
foreign ministry to name a new envoy to the U.N. after the U.S. blocked its 
chosen ambassador over alleged ties to the 1979 takeover of the U.S. Embassy in 
Tehran.

   Semiofficial Fars news agency also quoted Gen. Mohammad Bagherzadeh as 
saying Saturday that Hamid Aboutalebi should remain close to his mother because 
the family lost two sons during the 1980-88 war with Iraq.

   President Barack Obama signed legislation Friday aimed at blocking 
Aboutalebi from entering the U.S. Tehran has refused to name a different envoy 
after Washington refused to grant him an entry visa. Iran says it is 
challenging the U.S. "through legal channels." Iranian lawmakers say American 
opposition to Aboutalebi's entry is a misuse of the geographical location of 
the U.N.
