NEW YORK — Officials on Wednesday decided to reject the Iranian president’s request to visit ground zero just weeks after the anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks.
The decision came in a meeting that included representatives of the NYPD, the Secret Service and the Port Authority, according to police.
NYPD officials confirmed in a statement that earlier this month the department received a request from Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to visit the World Trade Center site during the United Nations General Assembly.
