Venezuela’s, Azerbaijan’s foreign ministers discuss commemoration of NAM’s 60th anniversary

On the occasion of the 76th UN General Assembly, the foreign ministers of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela and the Republic of Azerbaijan, Félix Plasencia and Jeyhun Bayramov, held a meeting to discuss the commemoration of the 60 years of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM).

At the meeting, Foreign Minister Bayramov handed over to his Venezuelan counterpart the formal invitation to this important forum of political concertation that will gather the 120 NAM member countries in Belgrade, Serbia.

The meeting was also attended by Venezuela’s Vice-minister for Asia, the Middle East and Oceania, Cayapa Rodríguez, and Permanent Representative to the UN-New York, Samuel Moncada.

In 2019, Azerbaijan’s President Ilham Aliyev assumed the NAM pro tempore presidency, handed over by Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro, and committed to defending the principles of international law and the integrity of the countries.
