Washington (CNN) - President Barack Obama will likely address the recent unrest in the Muslim world, including in Libya, when he speaks to the United Nations General Assembly Tuesday, according to administration officials.
He is expected to once again reject the views in the controversial video that is thought to have instigated the violence that resulted in the death of four Americans in Benghazi, one official said, while underscoring that violence is never acceptable.

"He will also send a clear message that the United States will never retreat from the world; will bring justice to those who harm Americans; and will stand strongly for our democratic values abroad," an official explained in a statement.
The president spoke from the Rose Garden soon after the events that led to the death of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other U.S. consulate staff on September 11. Members of his administration have since labeled the attack an act of terror. On Friday, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said the U.S. "will not rest until we have tracked down and brought to justice the terrorist who murdered four Americans."
Regarding Iran's nuclear program, the president is not expected to deviate from his position that Iran has failed to meet international standards, but the forum of world leaders is an "opportunity for him to underscore that Iran must not be allowed to develop a nuclear weapon."
