The statement, comprising 11 articles, said that heads of NAM member states gathered in Tehran to review the current international situation to help resolve problems which have caused serious concerns for both member states and the whole humanity.
They said, based on the basic principles of the movement, they would make great efforts to establish a world full of peace, cooperation, equality and prosperity.
They also underlined formation of a fair, all-inclusive, transparent and effective system of universal management based on cooperation among all countries to confront present challenges and security and environmental threats, climate changes, immigration and epidemic diseases.
The statement said that to address the problems, it should be noted that the present international decision-making procedure on issues pertaining to peace and security is faulty and resist any changes.
It said the United Nations as a global organization should play a basic role in forming a legal and management framework coordinating the activities of countries and international bodies on common issues.
The occupation of Palestine and the crimes of the Zionist regime in the occupied territories have always been the root causes of tensions in the Middle East. Any solution to end crises should include ways to end occupation, restore the inalienable rights of the Palestinian nation especially their rights to determine their own fate and establishment of a stable and independent country with the Holy Qods as its capital, as the only way to establish sustainable peace in the region, the statement added.
The NAM leaders further stressed in their statement that racism and ethnic discrimination are clear insults to the human dignity, stressing that appropriate measures and firm decisions are necessary to confront xenophobia, Islamophobia, new forms of slavery and human trafficking.
Underlining the fact that nuclear arms are the most non-human forms of all weapons, it said the Non-Proliferation Treaty is no excuse for big powers to keep huge arms arsenals.
It went on to underscore the absolute rights of all countries to develop, research, produce and use nuclear technology for peaceful purposes.
