I raised voices for the interest of developing nations in NAM Summit: Prime Minister Dahal

KATHMANDU –  Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ has said he raised voices for the interest of the developing nations in the 19th Summit of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) held in Kampala of Uganda.

At a news conference organised at Tribhuvan International Airport upon returning home after attending the 19th Summit of the NAM today, the PM said he firmly raised the issues of economic development and prosperity that the developing nations should get. “Achieving sustainable development goals (SDGs) is unlikely to be achieved. Nepal despite its efforts to graduate from a Least Developed Country has plunged into different multidimensional challenges,” the PM added.

On the occasion, the PM said he firmly highlighted the issues of economic development and prosperity that the developing countries should achieve by achieving the internationally agreed goals including the SDGs, Paris Agreement, and others. The PM stated that while addressing the concluding programme of the 19th NAM Summit, UN Secretary-General Antonio Gutterres said the NAM countries have made a big contribution to making the world system judicious, inclusive, and equitable, and its relevance has increased more in the present global context.

On the occasion President of Uganda called on NAM countries to come together and work for resolving our common problems, PM Dahal added. As the PM said in his address to the 19th NAM Summit, he urged the NAM members to reaffirm their commitment to the values and principles of non-alignment and avoid any double standards amongst themselves, calling them to work together with utmost sincerity, harmony, solidarity, and cooperation for our shared affluence.

“Let us reinvigorate NAM to make it a force to be reckoned with to build a just, equitable, peaceful, sustainable, and prosperous world, leaving no one behind,” he reiterated. “In conclusion, I would like to thank Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, the President of Uganda, for successfully organizing the 19th Summit of the NAM which has the most countries as its members after the United Nations and which remains the alternative forum of self-dignity, independence, autonomy, and solidarity of the Global South since long, and to Azerbaijan for providing leadership to the Movement since the last three years as its Chair,” Prime Minister Dahal said.
