Iran hands over NAM presidency to Venezuela

Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani has warned against forgetting the issue of Palestine in the face of the current crises in the world

Rouhani made the warning during his speech at the opening ceremony of the 17th summit of the Non-Aligned Movement or NAM on Venezuela’s Margarita Island. The Iranian president called on NAM member states to get united against terrorism and extremism, which are taking their toll on almost all the nations across the globe.

Referring to the conflicts in the Middle East, the Iranian president slammed some governments for supporting the terrorists for their own political gains. He then condemned major powers for violating the sovereignty of a number of developing countries.

During the Margarita meeting, Iran handed over the rotating presidency of the Non-Aligned Movement to Venezuela.
