Tehran will host the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) summit on 26-31 August. This is the 16th NAM summit. Tehran’s City Hall announced that all logistical, construction-related and security preparations for the summit have been finished ahead of schedule.
Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, in a rare appearance in an international conference along with other heads of state, will deliver a speech at the summit. Iran expects that some 42 countries represented by their heads of state or government to attend the summit. UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon is also expected to attend. With the start of the conference, Iran will resume the rotating presidency of NAM for three years.
