Tehran, April 18, IRNA -- President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad stressed the need for formation of a global movement to establish peace and security in the world.

President Ahmadinejad made the remarks in a phone conversation with his Venezuelan counterpart Hugo Chavez.

He condemned the military actions of some hegemonic powers against world nations and stressed the need for initiating global movements regarding important regional and international issues.

Saying that the US and its European allies were only seeking their own interests, the Iranian President called for new independent movements to solve the existing problems based on dialogue and negotiation.

Ahmadinejad further pointed to the plans engineered by the US to solve its problems and expand its dominance over the region as well as the world and said that like the 9/11 plot, America will again fail in its plans to rob countries from their resources thanks to the vigilance of world nations.

Turning to the situation in libya, he said Iran was against any intervention of the NATO and the US in the internal affairs of the countries.

President Ahmadinejad also highlighted the strategic ties between Iran and Venezuela.

President Chavez criticized some countries for backing military operations against the Libyan nation and said the present situation called for joint and collective measures by all world nations.
