Ahmadinejad made the remarks during a speech at the SCO summit in Beijing on Thursday.
He said that the expansion of economic, cultural, and political ties among the SCO member states and the establishment of monetary and financial institutions outside the dominance of hegemonistic powers would definitely help independent countries to establish a mechanism for a “just world order” and to come through “current unfavorable situation.”
“We all want to change the world to a better and lovelier one,” he said, adding that “inefficient and discriminatory system,” which is dominating the globe, has led the world to face economic crises.
He went on to say that the economic crises will lead to social and political crises.
Ahmadinejad, at the head of a high-ranking delegation, arrived in China on Tuesday evening to attend the SCO summit meeting, which opened on Wednesday and closed on Thursday.
The SCO is an intergovernmental security organization that was founded in 2001 in Shanghai by the leaders of China, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan.
Iran, India, Mongolia, and Pakistan are observer states of the organization.
