Tehran to Host NAM Meeting

A foreign ministry official said on Monday Tehran will host a Non-Aligned Movement meeting at the level of foreign ministers in June.
Hamid Baeidinejad, director general for political and international security affairs at the foreign ministry, said, "During the meeting, foreign ministers of NAM member states are expected to discuss and adopt a draft document comprising the policies and stances of NAM toward political, economic and cultural issues," ISNA reported.
Baeidinejad, who is the head of the secretariat of NAM at the foreign ministry, also said, "This document is the outcome of extensive studies by the Islamic Republic over the past three years since Iran assumed the presidency of the organization."
"Once NAM foreign ministers discussed and adopt the draft document, it will be submitted for final approval to the next NAM summit to be held in Caracas, Venezuela," the official noted.
Established in 1961, the Non-Aligned Movement is a group of nations which are not formally aligned with or against any major power bloc. As of 2012, the movement has 120 members and 17 observer countries.
Nearly two-thirds of United Nations countries are also members of the movement.  
Iran assumed the rotating presidency of the organization during the 16th summit of the Non-Aligned Movement which was held in Tehran on August 26-31, 2012.
Participants at that summit supported Iran's nuclear energy program while condemning the western-imposed sanctions against Tehran.
