NAM Seeks Increased Int'l Influence

Member states of the Non-Aligned Movement have called on the United Nations to grant more authority to developing countries.
In the closing statement of the 17th summit of NAM issued on Sunday, the member states also called for giving importance to the self-determination of emerging powers and urged the United Nations to include more states in the Security Council.
Held on Margarita Island, Venezuela, the NAM meeting brought together heads of state and delegates from member countries to discuss key regional and international issues. Iran handed over the rotating presidency of the bloc to Venezuela during the summit.
In his closing address, Venezuelan President Nicholas Maduro said the UN should not only be reformed, it should be re-founded in a manner that all nations have a more balanced share, Press TV reported.
Earlier, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said the Organization of Islamic Cooperation and NAM should fulfill their responsibility to promote regional peace and stability.
NAM, an international organization with 120 member states and 21 observer countries, represents nearly two-thirds of the UN members. It is regarded as not formally aligned with or against any major power bloc.
