Iran says NAM should take dynamic approach to tackle new challenges


12:51, August 29, 2012

TEHRAN, Aug. 28 (Xinhua) -- Iranian foreign minister Ali-Akbar Salehi said on Tuesday that the Non-aligned Movement (NAM) should take dynamic approach to deal with the new challenges in the world.

Ali-Akbar Salehi said that the NAM should be revitalized and updated in order to tackle the emerging global issues.

Salehi made the remarks during the debate session of the foreign ministers and other diplomats from the NAM members in the Iranian capital.

The two-day ministerial level meeting, started here in Tehran on Tuesday, is held after a preparatory senior officials meeting on Aug. 26-27 and will be followed by the NAM summit on Aug. 30-31.

The ministerial level meeting will study the draft document issued by the senior officials' meeting. The document will be reviewed finally at the summit.

"Today's situation, compared with the cold war era, presents many challenges coming from globalization," said the Iranian foreign minister.

"In the new world, unrest in one corner of the globe is no longer limited to that location, it has repercussion across the whole world," said Salehi.

"We need the NAM to be actively engaged in the concerned issues in the world," he said, adding that "in the new environment, we need to look forward to finding permanent solutions to the international issues."

"We need to get involved in the new situation from our own perspective ... We should take more dynamic approach to tackle the new environment," he added.

The Iranian official said that since NAM is an important movement, the member states need to coordinate their stances over diverse issues and make sure that the organization has a rightful position in the international community.
