NAM HEARS FIJI’S PLANS
Non – Aligned Movement member countries will today hear first hand from Fijian Foreign Affairs Minister Ratu Inoke Kubuabola on the developments in Fiji’s political, economical and social fronts.
The Minister will make a statement later today on Fiji’s progress towards elections in 2014 and the reforms that have taken place and those that will take place leading up to the polls.
Ratu Inoke is currently attending the Ministerial Meeting of the Non-Aligned Movement Coordinating Bureau that is being held at Sharm El- Sheik, Egypt.
Ratu Inoke delivered a statement at the opening session of the meeting on behalf of the Asia Pacific Region.
Speaking from Egypt, Ratu Inoke said that “as representatives of the Asia Pacific Region, we find that the principles of respect for sovereign and territorial integrity, non-interference and the right to self-determination, are bedrocks of international relations that have served NAM well in its sixty-one years of group diplomacy.”
NAM was formed in different and strategic reasons, but there continues to be highly relevant and makes positive contributions in the affairs of the international community.
NAM is a group of states that are not aligned to any major power bloc.
The Group represents nearly two-thirds of the United Nations’ members and contains 55 per cent of the world’s population.
Last year, Fiji became the 120th member of NAM.
The Ministerial Meeting of the NAM formally closes today.
