NAM SUMMIT: South Sudan joins Non-Aligned Movement 

Must read

South Sudan has joined the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM). The East African member state was announced by Yalchin Rafiyev, Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs for Azerbaijan, and the current chair of NAM.

Under the theme: Deepening cooperation for shared global affluence, the five-day summit kicked off on Monday at Speke Resort Munyonyo, Kampala.

“I wish to congratulate the Republic of South Sudan for becoming the new member state of the NAM. South Sudan has become the last African country to join NAM,” Yafiyev said. 

He said it is a history of making that South Sudan will be joining the movement, 12 years since the last African country joined. South Sudanese’s remarkable decision makes it the newest country to join the movement after Russia in 2021.

For a country to join NAM, it should have adopted an independent policy based on the coexistence of states with different political and social systems and on non-alignment, it should have supported national independence movements in a consistent manner and a member of a multilateral military alliance concluded in the context of great power conflicts. 

“If the country has a bilateral military agreement with a great power or is a member of a regional defense pact, the agreement or pact should have not been concluded deliberately in the context of great power conflicts,” indicates the NAM website.
