Holding the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) Summit in Baku is another great success for Azerbaijan, Azerbaijani MP from the ruling New Azerbaijan Party (NAP) Nagif Hamzayev told.
Given the movement's scale, political and economic potential, as well as the potential in influencing world politics, the Baku Summit was extremely important for Azerbaijan, Hamzayev noted.
According to the MP, just after eight years of membership in the Non-Aligned Movement, Azerbaijan hosted a very important international political event, which is one of the largest in the country’s history.
"Of course, this moment cannot but attract the attention of political scientists and experts from around the world. Given that approximately 55 percent of the world's population lives in NAM countries, more than 75 percent of the world's oil and 50 percent of gas reserves are in these countries, holding such a summit in Baku creates effective platform of opportunities for the country and promises important dividends. Hosting an international event, where more than half of the world is represented, is undoubtedly another proof of conformity of Azerbaijan’s foreign policy with the NAM principles and its growing international image. But the most important thing is that the NAM Summit in Baku has become a good opportunity to attract world's attention to the Armenia-Azerbaijan Nagorno-Karabakh conflict," Hamzayev said.
Hamzayev noted that during the chairmanship, Azerbaijan will attract attention not only to its problem, but also serve to increase the movement's role and image in the system of international relations, the development of its basic principles at the international level.
