(Ahlul Bayt News Agency) - Addressing the 16th Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) summit in Tehran today, Ahmadinejad stated that all the world nations are discontent with the current world conditions, and noted, "The historical and common causes and wishes of man, that is, removal of poverty, discrimination, threat, humiliation and war have not materialized yet."
He lashed out at the world powers' hegemonic policies and their efforts to prevent other nations' progress to plunder their wealth.
He said that the present world management is against the interests of the world nations, and noted, "World management should undergo a fundamental change in the interest of nations and in line with justice."
Earlier today, Supreme Leader of Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei told participants in the 16th Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) summit in Tehran that "states should raise their relations on the basis of common interests and not threat and intimidation."
The Leader said the world should not be ruled by a few number of "bullying powers".
He said the "UN Security Council has a completely unfair structure, and the US and its allies have been misusing this unfair structure to materialize their interests".
The leader said the US and its allies try to impose their own values on the world. "Their security in the US and Europe is important, while security of the rest of the world does not matter from their viewpoint."
"They impose their own rules and bullying words on the rest of the world" through the UN, he added, and said the US-led West portrays its aspirations as to be correct and fair through a media hegemony and propaganda.
"Everyone is tired of this situation in the world," he said.
The leader underlined that global peace and security is among the critical issues of the contemporary world. "In today world security is a common phenomenon."
