NAM in International Situation of Growing Tension

The Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) is an independent movement of developing countries to put an end to all manners of domination and subordination and safeguard peace and security, and to realize national sovereignty and achieve free socio-economic development.

At present, the international relations assume a complicated dimension where the countries reject and collude with each other according to their interests, and they are changing into a structure of new cold war which allow new conflicting blocks to be formed. Coupled with this, new problems have cropped up, threatening peace and security.

The U.S. and the West are becoming more undisguised in their high-handedness, arbitrariness and double-standard acts. And NATO is continuously expanding in the name of safeguarding the Western values. Formation of new confrontational unions such as “AUKUS” and “Quad” adds to the international concern over security.

Tension and crises are created on a world scale due to open bloc-forming, interference in internal affairs of sovereign states and other excessive U.S. policy for hegemony that threatens the international security environment.

Armed conflicts, social disorder and refugee crises in various countries and regions offer a clear proof of the hypocritical and shameless character of the U.S. and the West which clamor for the “safeguarding of peace, stability and democracy”.

Not a few countries attribute the root cause of the Ukrainian crisis, the major apprehension and disquiet of the international society, to the unilateral expansion and threat of NATO which upset the balance of power in Europe and gravely threatened the national security of Russia.

As the Ukrainian crisis becomes protracted, the U.S. and the West are imposing collective sanctions upon Russia and also forcing other countries to join their pressure campaign against Russia. But we find the increasing number of countries refuse to get involved in the anti-Russian acts with a clear understanding of the improper intention the U.S. and the West.

Recently, the developing countries are making active movements to maintain the principle of NAM aimed at independence against imperialism and peace against war, without following the U.S. This unequivocally reflects the aspiration and demand of these countries that are willing to oppose and reject the anachronistic confrontation policy and safeguard justice against highhandedness and arbitrariness of the U.S. and the West.

Reality demands that NAM, a giant political force with 120 members in it, fulfills its due responsibility and role in the face of complicated international political situation.

NAM countries should maintain the principle of respect for sovereignty, equality and non-interference in the internal affairs and take more vigorous actions to protect the common interests by dint of unity and cooperation.
