Will the Minister of EXTERNAL AFFAIRS be pleased to state:

(a) whether Government is not serious at present for the vital role to be played in Non-Aligned Movement (NAM);

(b) if so, the reasons for this underplay by India in NAM; and

(c) the reasons why Government is not taking major role now, being the leader for NAM?

ANSWER
THE MINISTER OF STATE IN THE MINISTRY OF EXTERNAL AFFAIRS
[SHRI V. MURALEEDHARAN]

(a) to (c) India continues to attach high importance to the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM). As a founding member of NAM, India remains committed to the purposes and principles of the Movement. Over the years, India has maintained its active and constructive engagement with the NAM with the objective of further strengthening solidarity and cooperation among its Member States. This approach is also reflected in India’s regular high-level participation in the meetings of the NAM including NAM Summits. Hon’ble Vice President of India Shri. M. Venkaiah Naidu led India’s delegation to the recently concluded 18th NAM Summit in Baku, Azerbaijan on 25-26 October 2019 and Hon’ble External Affairs Minister Dr. Subrahmanyam Jaishankar led the delegation to the preceding NAM Ministerial Meeting on 23 – 24 October 2019.
