CAIRO – 6 March 2023: Egypt has called for enhancing and activating cooperation amid the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) countries to lead the international efforts in order to tackle the vital issues that benefit the humanity.

Egypt’s Ambassador to Azerbaijan Hesham Nagy delivered the remarks on behalf of President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi during the Summit-level Meeting of the Non-Aligned Movement Contact Group in response to COVID-19 held in Baku on 2 March.

Nagy affirmed the importance that Egypt attaches to NAM in such historical moment that is witnessed in the international arena amid a return of conflicts as well as multiple challenges, including climate change, food crisis, and international pandemics.

The Egyptian ambassador reviewed the measures that Egypt has taken to contain much of the repercussions of the coronavirus crisis through financial, economic, and social policies that have proven their success and effectiveness.

This enabled the country to achieve positive growth rates and reduce unemployment rates despite all difficulties, Nagy said, adding that this has contributed to creating a state of stability and international confidence in the ability of the Egyptian economy to withstand and overcome crises.

The Non-Aligned Movement was formed in the sixties of the last century on the hands of late Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser and his Asian and African partners.

The forum, which has 120 member countries, was formed based on Nasser’s vision on the need for a collective union that comprises developing nations in order to freely work on, analyze, and find solutions to their own problems.
