Medelci “emphasized the reform and revitalization of the multilateral system notably the Security Council and Bretton Woods Institutions besides the handling of the crucial issue of environment,” Belani said in a statement.

Underlining the importance of peace preservation, the minister encouraged the Non-Aligned Movement to “adopt the triple-dimension governance system: local, regional and international,” the spokesman said.

In this context, Medelci proposed to “share experiences achieved in different regions of the Movement in terms of governance like the original experience of the African Peer Review Mechanism (APRM),” Belani added.

During their meeting in Tehran, NAM member countries Foreign Ministers adopted the draft final document, as amended by the officials to submit for approval by the 16th Summit of Heads of state and government, the same official said.

In addition, Medelci took part in the meeting of NAM Committee on Palestine. On this occasion, members of this committee issued a statement expressing “solidarity of the Movement with the just cause of the Palestinian people and condemns the policy of settlement and illegal practices carried out by Israel in the occupied territories, including Eastern Al-Quds,” said Belani.

The meeting of the heads of state and government will open on Thursday with an inaugural speech by Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei.

NAM, an international organization with 120 member states, is considered as not formally aligned with or against any major power bloc. The Movement has its origin in the Asia-Africa Conference held in Bandung, Indonesia in 1955 with leading figures such as Prime Minister Nehru of India and President Nasser of Egypt.

Following this meeting a preparatory meeting for the First NAM Summit Conference was held in Cairo, from 5-12 June 1961.NAM grew out of a need for  Third World countries to come together faced with the Cold war between the Soviet Union and the Western alliance of NATO.
