Ahmadinejad stresses need for a new world order

 

Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad calls for the creation of a new world order in dealing with the many challenges arising in the international political arena.

“What we need now is a dramatic change in world political thought,” said President Ahmadinejad in a Tuesday address to the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) in Moscow.

“Western-style capitalism is falling apart, marking the end of the age of Imperialism,” he added.

Ahmadinejad said the new world order should be less US-centric. “Washington’s many political and economic woes show that its judgment can no longer be trusted,” he explained.

Iran’s Friday election saw Ahmadinejad win 24.5 million of the votes — nearly 62 percent.

Ahmadinejad’s main rival, Mir-Hossein Moussavi, came second with 13.2 million votes, followed by Mohsen Rezaei with more than 630 thousand votes and Mehdi Karroubi with 320 thousand votes.
