The Leader said the world should not be ruled by a few number of "bullying powers"
He said the "UN Security Council has a completely unfair structure, and the US and its allies have been misusing this unfair structure to materialize their interests"
"States should raise their relations on the basis of common interests and not threat and intimidation," he stressed
The NAM summit started at 10:30 local time (0600 GMT) at the Leaders' Summit Hall in Northern Tehran and will last for two days

The leader said the world is entering a new era and the NAM should play a bigger role in this new world, adding that all world countries should have a share in global management
The meeting will be inaugurated by an opening speech of Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei
The 16th heads-of-state summit of the NAM started work on Thursday morning under Iran's presidency, a platform for anti-Western sentiments and grievances over big-power domination
