As UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon deliberates on whether to take part in the Non-Aligned Movement's summit of leaders at the end of the month in Tehran, Iran is already trumpeting the meeting as a sign that the country is not isolated.

According to Iran's PressTV, the head of the parliament's national security and foreign policy committee Alaeddin Boroujerdi said earlier this week that the summit is a "great achievement" for Iran that will dispel the idea the country is isolated internationally.

“Iran's enemies have repeated this big lie every now and then. Nevertheless, the presence of leaders and representatives of 120 NAM member countries in Tehran will display the great potential of Iran," Boroujerdi said.

He said NAM member states have "voiced support for the Islamic Republic of Iran's peaceful nuclear activities in numerous meetings.”
