Cuba's First Deputy Foreign Minister Gerardo Peñalver heads the delegation that will participate in the Ministerial Meeting of the Coordinating Bureau of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM), the Foreign Ministry informed today.
The meeting, to be held on July 5 and 6 in Baku, Azerbaijan, will make it possible to continue advancing in the process of revitalizing the NAM as a forum for political coordination, and to exchange views on other relevant issues on the international agenda.
It will also make it possible to promote dialogue, diplomacy and the peaceful settlement of disputes.
The Caribbean nation is one of the founding members of the NAM and currently chairs the Group of 77 plus China.
The island hopes that once again, within the framework of this ministerial meeting, the Movement will take a stand against the unjust and illegal blockade that the U.S. government maintains against the country.
According to information from the Foreign Ministry, the Cuban delegation will also include the ambassador to Azerbaijan, Carlos Valdés; Nadia Arredondo and Diosdado Hernández, officials from the General Directorate of Multilateral Affairs and International Law of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
