    Highlights of the Tehran Summit

    At the Tehran Summit, Iran is taking over from Egypt as chair of the Non-Aligned Movement for the period 2012 to 2015. The member countries of the Non-Aligned Movement represent nearly two thirds of the United Nations’ members and contain 55% of the total world population.

    Membership of NAM is particularly concentrated in countries considered to be developing or part of the Third World.

    The organization was founded in Belgrade, Yugoslavia in 1961 and was largely the brainchild of Yugoslav President Josip Broz Tito, India’s first Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru, Egypt’s second President, Gamal Abdel Nasser, Ghana’s first President, Kwame Nkrumah and Indonesia’s first President, Sukarno.

    All the five leaders were advocates of a middle course for states in the developing world between the Western and Eastern blocs in the Cold War era after the Second World War.
