Ahmadinejad: Current world order ineffective

president mahmoud ahmadinejad

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said the current world order is based on exploitation and dominations and lacks the aptitude to resolve world crises.

Addressing a Monday meeting of the Asian Cooperation Dialogue (ACD) in Tehran, the president reiterated the need for a new order, where nations and governments are equal.

"Every one must have an active role in world management," President  Ahmadinejad said, echoing his calls during his speech at the United Nations General Assembly in September.

The President added that Asian countries had a double responsibility, since they could tap into their vast resources, manpower, as well as culture.

"This is what the world greatly needs," he added.

Created in June 2002, the ACD is a body aimed to promote Asian cooperation at a continental level.

The 31-member body was founded originally by 18 states but expanded to include all current members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations and the Persian Gulf Cooperation Council.
