Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad stressed the important and decisive role that the Asian countries can play to decide the future world order, FNA reported.
"Asia has been the main cradle for the human civilization and the existing national and material talents and resources in it are unique," Ahmadinejad said in a meeting with the editors in chief of Kuwaiti media.
"Asia is the largest continent of the world with the largest population, but the Asian Cooperation Dialogue gathering definitely does not limit its sphere of discussion to Asia, since the world issues are too intermingled with each other to yield to continental separation," he added.
Ahmadinejad reiterated, "The status quo of the materialist and capitalist world order, which is a continuation of the former slavery and colonialist system, has already faced defeat and failed to provide security, welfare, peace, and sustainable development for the mankind, having reach dead ends today, whose signs are seen in capitalist countries today."
The president reiterated, "The leaders of the capitalist system tried for many years to sow the seeds of discord among nations so that they would have the opportunity to loot the nations' wealth, but today they are at the end of their way."
Pointing out that the world is in need of a new, Just World Order, Ahmadinejad reiterated, "Definitely, the future world order would be based on the fundamentals and the value system that the Asian nations are committed to, including justice, friendship, respecting the human beings, and equal status of the entire nations before the laws, which are the fundamentals that can solve the problems of the mankind and capable of establishing a more humane and sustainable New World Order."
The president said, "The Islamic Republic of Iran focuses on the ACD in line with harbingering reform in general world order."
Ahmadinejad was in Kuwait to attend the 1st summit of the Asia Cooperation Dialogue (ACD).
The two-day ACD summit opened in the Kuwaiti capital on Tuesday. Major Asian countries, including China, Japan, and India, as well as the members of the Persian Gulf Cooperation Council (PGCC) attended the summit.
The ACD was formed in June 2002 in Cha-Am, Thailand, where 18 Asian Foreign Ministers met together for the first time. The ACD is a continent-wide forum, the first of its kind in Asia. More specifically, the ACD aims to constitute the missing link in Asia by incorporating every Asian country and building an Asian Community without duplicating other organizations or creating a bloc against others.
