United Nations: The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Cuba, Bruno Rodríguez, will speak today in a ministerial meeting of the Movement of Non-Aligned Countries (NAM), as announced by the island’s ambassador to the UN, Ana Silvia Rodríguez.

This NAM appointment will be held mostly virtually, as has happened with numerous events at the United Nations headquarters, in New York, since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Just a few days ago, during the high-level debate of the United Nations General Assembly at the end of September, the president of Azerbaijan, Ilham Aliyev, as president pro tempore of the NAM, presented the vision of the bloc and its reiterated commitment to the strengthening of international peace and security.

It also expressed concern about the maintenance of unilateral coercive measures, which undermine international law.

He also highlighted the need for further modernization of the UN, to revitalize the work of the General Assembly and to reform the Security Council to make it a more democratic and representative body.

The NAM, founded in 1961, is the organization that brings together the largest number of nations in the world, after the United Nations.

Since its inception in 1961, the bloc has advocated becoming a space for political agreement, focused on strengthening international peace and security.

Precisely in 2020, it will be 65 years since the Bandung principles were adopted, which guide the work of that movement.
