The 118-member Non Aligned Movement (NAM) will hold its ministerial meetings on the sidelines of the United Nations' 62th General Assembly in New York.
Cuba's permanent mission to the UN, which leads the NAM Coordination Committee, called for the meeting, to be held on September 28 during the plenary of the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), said Cuban Ambassador to UN Rodrigo Malmierca.
The Non Aligned Movement comprises almost two-thirds of the UN member states.
This represents the first meeting of the NAM foreign ministers since the 14th NAM Summit, held in Havana, September 11-14, 2006.
According to the organizers, the meeting will serve to determine the NAM projects in key issues for humanity such as peace, disarmament, development and environmental protection.
