Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Thursday slammed the United Nations and called for a new world order, in an opening speech at the Non-Aligned Movement summit in Tehran.

“There are wars and killings, with all justified by the UN Security Council,” said Ahmadinejad, who was seated on the podium next to UN chief Ban Ki-moon.

“The world rulers today are the slave drivers of yesterday and launch wars, humiliate and weaken nations and kill innocent people ... we should therefore stand up for a new world order and management.”
