In simple terms, the NAM Summit is a gathering of nations that prefer not to align themselves with major power blocks like NATO or the former Soviet Union. Founded during the Cold War, its purpose was to give a voice to developing countries and maintain their independence in international affairs. The 19th NAM Summit in Uganda reflects the continued significance of this movement, with its focus on South-South cooperation and providing a platform for independent collaboration among nations. Representatives from across the world, including India’s External Affairs Minister, Dr. S Jaishankar, will discuss various global issues, with the outcomes impacting both the member states and the broader international community.
