BAKU, Azerbaijan, November 20. We did not remain silent in the face of the policy of the vaccine nationalism pursued by some countries, and encouraged fair vaccine distribution, said President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev as he addressed the participants of the Non-Aligned Movement Conference on Advancing the Rights and Empowerment of Women held in Baku, Trend reports.
"Driven by humanistic values, Azerbaijan has provided financial and humanitarian support to more than 80 countries, most of them being the NAM Member States. Moreover, Azerbaijan has allocated funding to support post-pandemic recovery in Africa and Small Island Developing States.
Significant steps have been taken towards further institutional development of the NAM during our Chairmanship. The NAM Parliamentary Network and the NAM Youth Organisation were established at Azerbaijan's initiative. I proposed creating the NAM Women Platform during the NAM Conference held this July in Baku," President Ilham Aliyev said.
