Brigadier General Masoud Jazayeri, deputy joint chief of staff of Iran's Armed Forces said the 'veto right' of the five permanent countries in United Nations Security Council should be reviewed by Non-Aligned Movement members' volition, Mehr reported on Aug.27.

"The permanent peace in the world is NAM's essential mission and achieving this goal requires the increase of the organisation's influence in the United Nations," he said.

NAM, an international organization comprising120 member states, is considered as not formally aligned with or against any major power bloc.

Jazayeri said that 16th summit of NAM is a great opportunity to make fundamental changes in forming the NAM members' approach and policy towards international happens to fight with the U.S. and Israel.
