The Iran Project : Iran’s interim president Mohammad Mokhber says the era of unilateralism is coming to an end and a new multilateral order is emerging in the world.
Iran's interim foreign minister Ali Bagheri Kani (2nd R) is reading a statement on behalf of interim president Mohammad Mokhber to the 19th Asia Cooperation Dialogue ministerial meeting in Tehran on June 24, 2024.
According to The Iran Project, Mokhber made the remarks in a statement to the 19th Asia Cooperation Dialogue (ACD) ministerial meeting, which was read out by Iran’s interim foreign minister Ali Bagheri Kani in Tehran on Monday.

He said the “power of new Asia and strengthening of economic and technological foundations in this continent” have played an important role in putting an end to the era of unilateralism.

“The world is in a period of historical transition to a new international order and the emergence of a multipolar world. This irreversible path is heavily influenced by emerging Asian powers,” he added.

Mokhber emphasized that the benefits and useful outcomes of multilateralism are evident in regional unions and organizations.

“We believe that under the existing circumstances in the international system, Asia can shape a new model based on justice, human dignity, dialogue, friendship and multilateralism in the field of changeable global relations,” he added.

The interim Iranian president said multilateralism will pave the way for benefiting from the opportunity to participate in multilateral arrangements, which are formed as a result of unity against unilateralism.

Iran believes that Asia can create positive changes in global relations and play a leading role in forging international convergence, he added.

He expressed confidence that the new model can boost synergy among Asian countries and be beneficial to reforms in global structures.

“What is vital for the new international order is to end the West’s monopolistic arrogance in the international political, economic, monetary and financial systems,” he said.

He also noted that more trade and economic convergence among the Asian countries as well as other emerging economies in the global south will facilitate and accelerate the path to achieve the abovementioned goal.

Elsewhere in his statement, Mokhber said modern technologies and artificial intelligence can create unique opportunities but at the same time can turn into the biggest challenges and threats in Asia and across the world.

As the rotating president of Asia Cooperation Dialogue, Iran has chosen the slogan of "a more powerful and coherent Asia through modern and emerging technologies" to be the focal point of its activities, he added.
