News Analysis: Iran aims to gain support at NAM summit (2)


17:27, August 28, 2012

Analysts also say that Iran has got a mild boost in its see-saw battle with Washington in hosting the summit, as the move in itself constitutes a setback for the United States, which has accused Tehran of taking advantage of this summit to push through its own agenda.

To Washington's chagrin, many bigwigs, including UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi, have decided to attend the summit, which also would bring together representatives from more than 100 countries and regions.

But analysts believe Iran still faces formidable task to prop up the Syria government in an effort to relieve itself of the outside pressure.

Given the current intricate situation, attendees of the summit, all having their own calculations, would not easily buy the peace plan presented by Iran.

In order to prevent Syrian government from falling and itself from being further isolated, it is expected that Iran will roll out one measure after another to try to settle the Syria crisis so as to dampen the pressure imposed by the West.
