MINSK, 28 October (BelTA) - Belarus invites the Non-Aligned Movement countries to hold a conference on new world order in 2021, Chairman of the House of Representatives of the Belarusian National Assembly Vladimir Andreichenko said as he addressed the 18th summit of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) in Baku, BelTA learned from the press service of the House of Representatives.

The speaker outlined Belarus’ position: the countries of the Non-Aligned Movement must first articulate their collective vision of a new world order built on the principles of peace, justice and prosperity for all. “Belarus offers a number of ideas in this context. We call on the NAM chairman to consider holding a conference on the vision of a new world order in 2021,” Vladimir Andreichenko noted.

This meeting will be of great symbolic importance as the Non-Aligned Movement celebrates its 60th anniversary in September 2021. “We think it is important for the Non-Aligned Movement to mark this date with the adoption of a long-term strategic document. Only an active position will allow it to maintain its legitimate role in world affairs and strengthen it,” the chairman of the House of Representatives is convinced.

Vladimir Andreichenko stressed that Belarus is ready to cooperate with all partners in order to overcome modern challenges and threats. “We will continue to consistently uphold the values of the Non-Aligned Movement based on the UN Charter, including the principles of sovereignty, territorial integrity and equality, peaceful resolution of disputes, non-use of force or threat of force, non-interference in the internal affairs of sovereign states,”; he stated.

The 18th summit of the Non-Aligned Movement is running in Baku on 25-26 October.

The Non-Aligned Movement, which unites 120 nations on the principles of non-participation in military blocs, was established in 1961. Belarus joined the organization in 1998 and has been its active participant ever since. The country's priorities in the Non-Aligned Movement are to counter human trafficking, to prevent the politicization of human rights and the use of unilateral coercive measures (sanctions), to make sure the interests of middle-income countries are taken into account in the sustainable process, to prevent the development of new weapons of mass destruction, to revitalize the UN General Assembly and Secretariat, and so on.
