Iran FM in Bali to Attend NAM Meeting

The Iranian minister, who arrived in Bali early Wednesday at the head of a delegation, is scheduled to deliver a speech at the meeting, IRNA reported.

He is also expected to hold talks with foreign ministers of NAM states, including his Egyptian counterpart Nabil al-Arabi on the sidelines of the meeting.

The 16th ministerial meeting of the 118-member movement opened in Bali on Wednesday to discuss leading global issues, including human rights, climate change, pandemics, food security and development.

The meeting will also commemorate the 50th anniversary of NAM that was established in September 1961 in former Yugoslavia's Belgrade.

At the end of the conference, Iran will take over its presidency for the next year. Egypt currently chairs the organization.

Earlier in May, Salehi confirmed planned talks with Egypt's foreign minister, saying he would raise issues pertaining to the NAM and Tehran-Cairo relations in his talks with al-Arabi.

Following the ouster of its pro-Western President Hosni Mubarak, post-revolution Egypt looks poised to open a new page in its relations with the Islamic Republic.

Iran severed ties with Egypt after Cairo signed the 1978 Camp David Accords with the Israeli regime and offered asylum to Iran's deposed monarch Mohammad-Reza Pahlavi.

Ahead of his trip to Indonesia, the top Iranian diplomat paid a two-day visit to China and held talks with Chinese Vice President Xi Jinping and his Chinese counterpart Yang Jiechi.

The Iranian and Chinese officials discussed Tehran-Beijing relations in political, economic and cultural fields, the nuclear issue and key developments in the Middle East and North Africa.
