The XVIII summit of the Non-aligned Movement (NAM) continues in Baku on Saturday, October 26.
The movement is composed of 120 member states and is the second-largest congregation of countries after the UN. Established in Belgrade, then-Yugoslavia in 1961, the movement is characterised by its self-proclaimed mission of fighting colonialism and establishing peace and security for non-aligned countries.
The movement is led by a chair that rotates every three years. The last summit was held in Venezuela where Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro was elected as the chairperson.
