Iran assumed the rotating presidency of NAM for a three-year term on August 30. 
 
Ambassador Ali Asghar Soltanieh said that the Zionist regime opposed the conference because of the fact that it is not a signatory to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and the United States wanted the conference to be delayed because it is a supporter of Israel. 
 
The U.S. said on November 23 that the conference on creating a zone free of weapons of mass destruction, which was scheduled to be held in mid-December, would not take place and did not make it clear when or whether it would be held. The United States, Britain, and Russia are co-sponsors of the meeting.
