It is my pleasure to welcome you to the official website of the Coordinating Bureau of the Non-Aligned Movement (CoB-NAM), set up following the assumption of the Chairmanship of the NAM by the Islamic Republic of Iran at the XVI NAM Summit, held on 26-31 August 2012, in Tehran. This website aims to reflect the activities of the Chair and its efforts in promoting cooperation and coordination among NAM Member and Observer States and Organizations.
In 1979, following the Islamic Revolution earlier in the same year, the Islamic Republic of Iran joined the NAM and has ever since endeavored towards upholding its principles and realizing its lofty goals. Iran (I. R.), as Chair of the Movement, is determined to follow on the same path and spare no efforts in strengthening its functions, promoting its goals and enhancing its efficiency.
The Tehran Summit of the Non-Aligned Movement was a major opportunity for NAM Members, Observers and their guests to come together and to exchange views on the international issues and take concrete measures in promoting cooperation and coordination among them. In the same spirit, we hope that this website could be of help towards making necessary arrangements and enhancing coordination within the CoB-NAM for smoothly running the affairs of the Movement.
