Final Document of the 16th Summit of the Non-Aligned Movement in Tehran 2012.
On 31 August 2012 the 16th Summit of the 120 nations Non-Aligned Movement concluded in Tehran. While western main stream media found the summit hardly newsworthy and focused predominantly on the diplomatic eclat between the newly elected Egyptian President Mursi and the Syrian delegation, the summit dealt with a number of issues that are of considerable bearing for global security, peace and justice.
Some of the most pertinent issues that seemingly were not worth mentioning were:
- A re-animation of the United Nations General Assembly.
- A structural reform of the United Nations Security Council.
- The abuse of international law, including the responsibility to protect, to lend apparent legitimacy to illegal violations of national sovereignty, sanctions and military interventions.
- The necessity of reforms in international justice, the abuse of the International Criminal Court for political show trials and victors justice.
These, and many other pertinent issues which were debated at the 16th NAM summit in Tehran are of course much more pressing issues in nations which are potentially at the receiving end of violations of international law, sanctions and aggressions.
