The Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) has used the United Nations General Assembly Sixth Committee to voice its unequivocal condemnation of terrorism. As the movement’s current chair, Iran represented the body at the session, which kicked off its annual meeting with a focus on international terrorism in New York on Tuesday.

The deputy ambassador to the UN said, “The Non-Aligned Movement unequivocally condemns as criminal and rejects terrorism in all its forms and manifestations.”

“Terrorism should not be equated with the legitimate struggle of peoples under colonial or alien domination and foreign occupation for self-determination and national liberation,” Press TV quoted Gholam Hossein Dehqani as saying.  In August 2012, Iran assumed the rotating presidency of NAM for a three-year term during the movement’s summit in Tehran.
