The relevance of the non-aligned movement is still the same: Speaker Sapkota

Kathmandu. Speaker Agni Prasad Sapkota said that the relevance of the non-aligned movement was still there due to threats to world peace, interference in domestic affairs, inequality and incidents of misconduct.

Addressing a meeting of the Non-Aligned Movement Network (NAM) in Spain last night, he said it was needed in the context of upholding the principles of the UN Charter, supporting national independence, and protecting sovereignty and territorial integrity.

Developing countries around the world continue to be deprived of equal opportunities in the economic, social and political spheres,” he said. As a result, our parliaments will continue to support and encourage national efforts in that direction. “Sapkota also expressed the belief that parliamentary solidarity and exchange of experience would strengthen the principles and ideals of the Non-Aligned Movement. “Non-alignment in Nepal is a fundamental aspect of our foreign policy. The five principles of peaceful coexistence are based on the teachings of the Panchasheel, the immortal son of Nepal, Buddha, ‘he said.

A delegation led by Speaker Sapkota, who left for Spain on December 26 to attend the IPU conference, is scheduled to return home on November 30.
