The 120-nation Non-Aligned Movement has wrapped up its summit in Tehran with a declaration supporting Iran's right to the peaceful use of nuclear power. 

The statement comes a day after the UN's nuclear watchdog accused Iran of blocking a probe of a military site southeast of Tehran, Parchin, suspected of being used for nuclear-related explosive tests. 

Earlier, Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said emerging nations have a greater right than the West or United Nations to resolve Syria's escalating civil war. 

Many NAM nations, especially the Sunni Muslim ones, however, are sympathetic or back the rebels. 

On August 30, Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi told the summit that Assad's "oppressive" regime had lost its legitimacy and that the world needed to back the rebels.

Meanwhile, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has defended his decision to attend the NAM summit in Tehran, saying he used the occasion to press Iran on human rights and greater transparency regarding its nuclear program.

Ban disgraced himself and exposed the UN as a US institution.

Major victory for IRI and a humiliation to the isolated US.

Salaam Muslim.
Indeed, and readers should take a good look at the history and formation of the International Atomic Energy Commission, why it was formed, who controls it, and how it later associated itself with the UN to become "the UN's nuclear watchdog".

Does't matter, you gatta address the double standards of your world before you start chastising others. When you continue to help India who is a non signatory of Non-proliforaton treaty to continue to boost their military nuclear programe, when Israel who has fought numerous wars of aggression and expansion have tons of stockpiles of nuclear missiles, your deragatory comments have no effect. The entire UN nuclear watchdog is nothing other than a politicized oufit under control of Israel and US as mentioned by both ElBeradie and Scott Ritter in their very well written books. Infact thats why Elberadie lost his post as he was unwilling to perpetuate the lies of P5 about Iran's nuclear activities.

German media is reporting that during the Summit Iran signed a technical cooperation agreement with the DPRK which, according to this media, is supposed to intensify the exchange between the two states in the fields of ballistic and nuclear technology.
