Paris, Nov 7, IRNA – President Hassan Rouhani, who is the rotating chairman of Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) sent a message to the joint session of NAM and Group 77 + China.
The message was read by President’s cultural advisor Hessam-o-ddin Ashna here on Wednesday afternoon in the venue of UNESCO headquarters.
In the message, the president said that the action to hold a joint meeting is an effective step to promote level of activity of both groups in international interactions and persuading and strengthening morale of multilateralism, which causes more abilities of nations and governments to pave common road for common problem.
A glance at the principles and basic goals of NAM and Group 77 + China indicates that holding the joint meeting of both groups on the sidelines of the UNESCO General Conference is so appropriate and meaningful.
Expansion of education, science, communication, and cultural knowledge among human beings can help establishment of values for common understanding and provide human peace, freedom and mutual respect among nations.
ˈI believe that at the end of your meeting and in your joint statement, common aspects between UNESCO goals and responsibilities with these two groups would be more prominent and ways for more cooperation between NAM and Group 77 + China in the UNESCO are opened.ˈ
In another part of message, he said that sovereignty of justice, human glory and spiritual and morale values in international level are pre- conditions for maintaining and promoting world peace.
One of the most important pre-conditions to establish such atmosphere in the world is to use language of dialogue and forget language of threat. Support for equality of rights of all nations and respecting national, local and indigenous identities will bring peaceful solution for conflicts.
One of the methods of imposing pressure is unilateral, illegal, and inhuman sanctions against countries and now it would be better to think about more innovative methods than imposing sanctions against nations.
