Bolivian President Evo Morales will visit Tehran at the head of a high-ranking delegation in the next few days to attend the 16th heads-of-state summit of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM), the country’s envoy to Tehran said.

“A high ranking delegation headed by president Morales will attend the NAM meeting in Tehran,” Bolivia’s Ambassador to Tehran Jorge Rodolfo Miranda Luizaga said.

The envoy further pointed to the NAM meeting in the Iranian capital, and said, “NAM is very important to us, therefore, a high ranking delegation will accompany President Evo Morales in the Tehran summit.”

“The foreign minister of Bolivia along with presidency minister and three senior diplomats from the ministry of foreign affairs will accompany president Morales in this meeting”, he continued.

The 16th NAM summit will be held in Tehran from August 26 to 31.

Iran will assume the rotating presidency of the movement from Egypt for three years during the upcoming summit.
