The meeting of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) heads of state, which is the last leg of the NAM's 16th summit in Tehran, has kicked off in the Iranian capital with an inaugural speech by the Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei. More than 100 countries are partaking in the NAM summit, which kicked off at the expert level in Tehran on Sunday.
The two-day foreign ministerial meeting of the NAM member states wrapped up on Wednesday with member states finalizing a draft document after two days of deliberations. The meeting of the heads of state will discuss the draft document, which mainly focuses on the Palestinian issue and the Syria unrest.
NAM, an international organization with 120 member states, is considered as not formally aligned with or against any major power bloc. It represents nearly two-thirds of the UN members. Press TV has interviewed Hisham Jaber, director of the Center for Middle East Studies from Beirut, to further talk over the issue.
