Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told the United Nations that “demanding liberal capitalism and transnational corporations” have caused the world’s most serious problems.

“The undemocratic and unjust governance structures of the decision-making bodies in international economic and political fields are the reasons behind most of the plights today humanity is confronting,” Ahmadinejad said in an address to a summit meeting on the UN poverty and hunger reduction targets known as the Millennium Development Goals.

The past decade, he said, was “unfortunately marred with war, occupation, carnage, wandering and intimidation.”

Ahmadinejad, who didn’t specify what nations or governing bodies he was referring to, said the “discriminatory order of capitalism and the hegemonic approach are facing defeat and getting closer to the end.”

Iran, the Middle East’s second-largest oil producer, is dealing with trade and financial sanctions imposed by the UN and member governments including the U.S. because of its nuclear program.

The Iranian leader called for a new order based on the “divine mindset,” suggested that the next 10 years be called the “Decade for the Joint Global Governance,” and urged all leaders at the UN to plan for its realization.

A round of applause from diplomats in the hall followed Ahmadinejad’s speech.
