The NAM ministerial conference in Tehran has called for a just and equitable world order, stressing global partnership for access to peace and justice, the foreign ministry said Thursday.

The 15th Ministerial Conference of the Non-Aligned Movement, comprising 118 member countries of the developing world, concluded Thursday in the Iranian capital.

More than 70 member states, as well as 15 observer states and eight regional and international bodies, participated in the two-day event. Bangladesh was elected this year as one of the conference chairs.

NAM ministers mainly focused on issues relating to Palestine, unilateralism, disarmament, climate changes, terrorism, food security and peace, the foreign ministry said.

Agriculture adviser CS Karim, who led the Bangladesh delegation had emphasised the present and future impact of climate change, and the current global issue of food security, during the conference.

The adviser also extended Bangladesh's support towards the cause of Palestine and reiterated support towards a denuclearised but reunited Korea, the foreign ministry said.

The final document of the conference included three distinct segments on global issues, regional and sub-regional political issues and social and human rights issues.

The document underlined the current challenges in the areas of peace and security, economic development and social progress, human rights and the rule of law for non-aligned countries.

It also reaffirmed NAM's commitment to consolidating and enhancing the movement's role and position as the principal political platform representing the developing world.
