November 16, 2009|Times Wire Reports

Iran's first lady made a rare public appearance and even more rare, a speech, at a Rome forum on the eve of a U.N. summit to fight hunger.

The wife of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is believed never to have made a speech before.

First Lady Azam Sadat Farahi came to the forum of wives of heads of state before the three-day summit on strategies to fight world hunger at the Rome headquarters of the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization, or FAO.
