Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said in Belgrade on Oct. 11 that the key principles of the Non-Aligned Movement, established 60 years ago, continued to be very important today.

Speaking at a plenary session of a high-level meeting marking the 60th anniversary of the first conference of the Non-Aligned Movement, Cavusoglu, a minister of a NATO member country, said that the struggle against economic inequality in the world and a multilateral approach to solving global problems were at the core of those principles.

"Inequality continues to increase worldwide, the technological gap between the developed and underdeveloped countries is growing wider. The Cold War is over, a bipolar world has turned into a multipolar one, which is why the challenges are much more complex, but the main principles of the declaration in Belgrade remain very relevant and important," said Cavusoglu.

Cavusoglu is taking part in the gathering, and was given an opportunity to speak in the first part of the plenary session, despite the fact that Turkey is a member of NATO, one of the two military blocs because of which the Non-Aligned Movement was established as a counterweight in 1961.
