Iran has appealed to the 120 member countries of the Non-Aligned Movement for support, but only was supported only by two of them, Syria and India. The official English-language publication of the IRI, Tehran Times, has now reported this as well.
As you may recall, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Azerbaijan reported yesterday that documents containing calls for international condemnation of the terror attack against the Embassy of Azerbaijan in Iran on January 27, the identification and prompt punishment of the organizers and perpetrators of the terrorist act, as well as for the fulfillment of obligations arising from the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations, had been submitted to relevant international organizations and platforms for adoption. MFA noted that Iran had objected to the draft communiqués and statement submitted by Azerbaijan to Coordinating Bureau of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) and the Conference on Interaction and Confidence Building Measures in Asia (CICA) and tried to prevent the adoption of those documents. According to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Azerbaijan, “Iran has appealed to numerous countries for the support of its position in the aforementioned organizations, but support to Iran’s position was given only by Syria and India among the 120 countries in the Non-Aligned Movement.”
Tehran Times now confirms this as well: “…Iran has appealed to numerous countries for the support of its position in the aforementioned organizations, but support to Iran’s position was given only by Syria and India among the 120 countries in the Non-Aligned Movement.” Given that Syria is essentially an Iranian protectorate, and India most often acts out of desire to spite Pakistan, we can only “congratulate” Iran’s diplomacy on this result.
