ALGIERS- Prime Minister and Finance Minister Aïmene Benabderrahmane stressed, Monday in Belgrade, the need to further enhance the foundations of non-alignment, noting that Algeria’s role in this regard “will be pivotal.”
In a statement to the press, Mr. Benabdelrahmane, who represented the President of the Republic, Mr. Abdelmadjid Tebboune, explained in the work of the conference commemorating the 60th anniversary of the establishment of the Non-Aligned Movement, which opened on Monday in the Serbian capital, that “the need to strengthen the foundations of non-alignment is emerging again, as the principles of non-alignment will allow Non-alignment to move forward in order to achieve peace and stability in the world.”
The Prime Minister also reiterated that “Algeria’s role will be pivotal as it has always been,” recalling, in this regard, the call for the establishment of a new global economic order called for by the late President Houari Boumediene, during the Algiers Conference in 1973.
He added, “We still insist on this in order to ensure stability, peace and balanced development for all peoples.”
It should be noted that the non-aligned countries held a summit, on Monday, in order to commemorate their first conference, which took place in 1961 in the Serbian capital, at a time when the movement seeks to revitalize and establish a just world order surrounded by peace.
The Belgrade Conference, which was organized from 1 to 4 September 1961, marked the birth of the Non-Aligned Movement
It was the culmination of the first conference in Bandung in 1955, and it is the fruit of the first diplomatic rapprochement between Asian and African countries, which was based on three major demands that support decolonization, the integration of their countries into the multilateral system and economic development.
