Iran's envoy to the International Atomic Energy Agency, IAEA, Ali Asghar Soltanieh, left, talks with a foreign diplomat prior to the start of an expert-level meeting of the Non-Aligned Movement, NAM, in Tehran, Iran, Sunday, Aug. 26, 2012. Iran opened a world gathering of self-described nonaligned nations Sunday with a slap at the vast powers of the U.N. Security Council and an appeal to rid the world of nuclear weapons even as Tehran faces Western suspicions that it is seeking its own atomic arms. Iran seeks to use the weeklong gathering as a showcase of its global ties and efforts to challenge the influence of the West and its allies. (AP Photo/Vahid Salemi)
