"On Tuesday, United Against Nuclear Iran (UANI) called on Brazil's Royal Tulip Rio de Janeiro Hotel (Royal Tulip), of France-based Golden Tulip Hospitality Group (Golden Tulip), to reverse its decision to host Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and his delegation during this week's meeting of the Rio+20 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil . . . In a letter sent June 18, 2012 to Hans Kennedie, President & CEO of Golden Tulip, and George Durante, General Manager of the Royal Tulip, UANI Executive Director, David Ibsen, wrote: '. . . Ahmadinejad's trip also comes as the international community is working to economically and diplomatically isolate the Iranian regime for its illicit nuclear program, egregious human rights violations and state sponsorship of terrorism. The Golden Tulip is therefore exposing itself to serious reputational and financial harm by hosting the Iranian regime.'"
