PRESIDENT AKUFO-ADDO ATTENDS 60TH ANNIVESARY OF THE FOUNDING OF THE NON-ALIGNED MOVEMENT

The President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, left Ghana on Sunday, 10th October 2021, to lead the Ghanaian delegation to attend the 60th anniversary ceremony of the founding of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM), which is being held in Belgrade, Serbia.

After the United Nations, it is the largest grouping of states worldwide. Ghana’s first President, President Kwame Nkrumah, was one of the five historic founding fathers of the Movement, together with Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru of India, President Ahmed Sukarno of Indonesia, President Gamel Abdel Nasser of Egypt, and President Josip Broz Tito of the then Yugoslavia, who launched the Movement in Belgrade.

The President will hold bilateral talks with his Serbian counterpart, His Excellency Aleksandar Vučić, aimed at strengthening the ties of co-operation between the two countries.
