Ahmadinejad calls for new world order
Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has called for a new world order of justice-seeking nations, to replace the existing Western-dominated liberal status quo.
President Ahmadinejad made the remarks at the inauguration ceremony of the 2nd International Conference on Hollywoodism and Cinema in Tehran on Thursday.
The Iranian chief executive stated that the world's dominant powers deliberately bully the smaller nations, who are not in conflict with one another, thereby creating artificial problems between them.
President Ahmadinejad also pointed out that this new world order needs to be all-inclusive, and not be dominated by any particular single nation.
At least 48 foreign scholars from France, the US, Canada, Belgium, Greece, Spain, Tunisia, Italy, Egypt, Russia, Lebanon, Azerbaijan, Palestine and the UK are taking part in the conference.
The event kicked off in the Iranian capital, as part of the 2012 Fajr International Film Festival.
