A final document was adopted at the Mid-Term Ministerial Conference of the Non-Aligned Movement in Baku on April 6.

The final document reads that according to the UN Charter, participants of the Mid-Term Ministerial Conference of the Non-Aligned Movement will continue to objectively resist all attempts aimed at partial or total disintegration of the countries' territorial integrity and national unity.

“Thus, we will continue to avoid threats to sovereignty of states, peaceful settlement of conflicts, use of force, and further pursue policy of non-interference in the internal affairs of the countries. We value the Baku Process initiated by Azerbaijan in 2008 as a key platform for the development of intercultural dialogue in order to build an effective dialogue among civilizations.”

The Baku Declaration, as well as the Final Declaration on Palestine, approved at the meeting of the Committee of Ministers on Palestine, held the day before, were also adopted on the second day of the conference.
