Have a look at this clip, from Iranian TV, which is pro Ahmadinejad.
It shows Ahmadinejad in Geneva and people clapping for him!
No sign of any diplomat leaving.
If you look closely, the camera zooms in on on his enthusiastic backers. On closer inspection we see that they are Manuchehr Mottaki, his Foreign Minister and Esfandiar Rahim Meshai, the father in law of his daughter.
However other publications in Iran did show the empty seats.
This publication belongs to Mohsen Rezai, who is Ahmadinejad’s rival in the conservative movement.
Today’s events will not bode well for Ahmadinejad’s electioneering campaign, nor for Iran’s efforts to gather international consensus for the acceptance of its nuclear program.
20th of April 2009 was a very bad day for Iranian foreign policy.
