NAM Summit: Diplomatic Triumph for Iran?
by grtv

The Non Aligned Movement consists of some 120 members and 17 observer members. Former Cuban leader Fidel Castro, in 1979 defined the purpose of the Non Aligned Movement as "the national independence, sovereignty, territorial integrity and security of non-aligned countries" in their "struggle against imperialism colonialism, neo-colonialism, racism and all forms of foreign aggression."

Lots of revolutionary ideas but how close is NAM to this vision will be looked at on this News Analysis featuring statements from Stephen Lendman, Omar Nashabi and Paul Craig Roberts. We will also take a look at the original purpose of this organization and what has or has not been accomplished by it since its inception in 1961.

The extraordinarily “remarkable turnout” of so many countries for the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) in Tehran shows the countries’ support for Iran’s sovereign rights to make use of peaceful nuclear technology, says Stephen Lendman.

The comment comes as the more than 100 countries are partaking in the NAM summit which kicked off in the Iranian capital Tehran on Sunday and is scheduled to end on August 31.

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon will also participate in the event, during which the Islamic Republic will assume the rotating presidency of NAM for three years.

Political analyst Omar Nashabi says the wide presence of high-level representatives at the 16th Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) summit being held in Iran is a diplomatic triumph for the Islamic republic. More than 100 representatives of NAM member states have attended the conference.

According to Iran’s foreign ministry spokesman, the participation of at least 27 presidents, two kings, seven prime ministers and two Parliament speakers has been confirmed so far.

NAM is the biggest international organization after the United Nations General Assembly.
