An Iranian deputy foreign minister called on members of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) to strengthen their cooperation in order to neutralize increasing threats caused by unilateralism in the world.
Addressing a conference celebrating the 60th anniversary of the Non-Aligned Movement in Serbia’s capital, Belgrade, on Tuesday, Mehdi Safari said that the extensive challenges facing the world have redoubled the need for taking significant collective action at the international level, IRNA reported.
The Iranian official noted that through strengthening its global cooperation, the NAM can prove that multilateralism is a practical response to global crises.
He described the COVID-19 pandemic as one of the difficult tests in the field of global solidarity in the world’s history.
Safari stressed that Iran has consistently demonstrated its commitment to the values and principles of the Non-Aligned Movement. We continue to support the vision of achieving a common, comprehensive and sustainable security in West Asia. In this context, Iran is actively participating in the United Nations’ efforts to establish peace in Yemen, Syria and Afghanistan.
