Iran renews call for reformation of international bodies

TEHRAN, Sept. 29 (MNA) – Iran’s envoy to the UN, Mohammad Khazaei, has renewed Tehran’s call for restructuring international bodies particularly the UN Security Council, the International Monetary Fund (IMF), and the World Bank.

Khazaei made the remarks in an address to the 34th annual meeting of foreign ministers of the G-77 and China in New York on Tuesday.

During his speech, Khazaei called on the developing countries to mobilize their resources to help restructure the international bodies so that the world’s socio-economic problems would be resolved.

Elsewhere in his remarks, Khazaei said that the Group 77 and China can use their potential to lessen the effects of the international economic crisis.

The economic crisis could pose a great danger to the development and stability, and even the security of many countries, Iran’s top diplomat at the UN noted.

The Iranian envoy also urged closer South-South cooperation.

In addition, Khazaei expressed the Islamic Republic’s solidarity with the Pakistani government and nation over the recent devastating floods.

The Group of 77 at the United Nations is a coalition of developing nations, designed to promote its members’ collective economic interests and create an enhanced joint negotiating capacity in the United Nations Security Council.
