Iran, SL ask for new world order

23 June 2012 04:51 am - 41     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa stressed the need for establishment of a new world order in their meeting in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on Friday.

Ahmadinejad and Rajapaksa met on the sidelines of Rio+20 UN Conference on Sustainable Development.

“Cooperation among independent states is essential for their progress forward; the justice-seeking nations should cooperate to design a new global order; those who are behind today problems do not deserve designing the new order.”

“Independent states are under great pressures from hegemonic powers but they should understand the fact that the pressures including the sanctions and resolutions will not affect nations’ desire to resist; the biggest violators of human rights use the issue as an excuse to confront sovereign nations.”

“Arrogant powers use also environmental issues as an excuse to pressure developing nations but if they were real defenders of environment; they would change their polluting technologies.”

The Iranian president noted that those who afraid of change of the world current order are designing plots to weaken independent states and prevent their progress; Non-Alignment Movement summit in Tehran is an opportunity to make positive steps in favor of independent nations; Today’s world lacks independent movements and NAM has the capacity to fill the gap.

Ahmadinejad also underlined that Iran is committed to expand cooperation with Sri Lanka.

Sri Lanka’s president for his part, welcomed development of bilateral relations with Iran, noting that NAM should become stronger to confront the pressures posed by arrogant powers.

“Holding of NAM summit in Tehran can boost its role in the international community,” he noted.(IRNA)

    Australia's heritage dates back 30,000 years when man first arrived on that continent. The Americas were also host to very ancient civilisations. If you are talking about the modern era, then Sri lanka would be one of the youngest countries.

    Nandana Sunday, 24 June 2012 07:50 AM

    Good friendship. Please invite both Iran and chevez to Sri-Lanka for long stay. we can import crude free.

    ash Sunday, 24 June 2012 08:41 AM

    None of you have a clue is to what is meant by New World order? Please look up on youtube to understand the dept of this hidden agenda. This is one of the best kept secrets of the world we live in.

    Ranjith Sunday, 24 June 2012 08:50 AM

    But latter trio is more civilized. And their rulers do not depend on religion and race for survival.

    das Sunday, 24 June 2012 11:23 AM

    Yeah. But the Mad dog of Libya is not there to head the new world order, unfortunately for the other tyrants.

    faizan Saturday, 23 June 2012 12:35 PM

    Bandu Saturday, 23 June 2012 01:05 PM

    Sri Lanka, Iran, N Korea, Burma, Somalia should form a New World Order of independent-thinking countries. Once they see our success, others will join. (LOL)

    Time is ripe to have a new world order as now Western Countries are in a peculiar stance in judging the affairs of other
    countries. Their economic strength is fast evading and the countries which stand on their own should be recognized and must have the impunity of being harassed by so called big nation whose bigness is questionable.
