News Talk Online September 15, 2009: Opening Session Of UN General Assembly And Is The Recession Over?

Today marked the first day of the opening session of the United Nations General Assembly and correspondent Alan Jasie reported from the UN about the expected high - and perhaps low - lights upcoming.

Top on that list, the September 24th much anticipated speech of Iran's Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. There are those who wish he be ignored - but in all likelihood he will make a splash - especially as the European Union prepares to meet with him in Turkey to discuss nuclear non-proliferation.

Climate change, human rights in many areas of the world and the Israeli-Arab conflict will also, Jasie reports, be major issues.

The second half of the show focused on Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke's proclamation that the recession is "likely" over.
