Leaders and representatives from 120 member countries have gathered in Kampala for the summit, which is poised to address pressing global issues, including peace and security, economic development, and climate change.

The NAM, representing nations that are not aligned with any major power bloc, plays a pivotal role in fostering dialogue and collaboration on the international stage.

Ambassador Ayebare, elected as the Chairperson for the senior officials’ meeting as the summit kicked off, is now guiding discussions and facilitating cooperation among member states. His leadership during this critical phase is expected to set the tone for the summit’s agenda and outcomes.

In his opening remarks, Ambassador Ayebare highlighted the importance of unity and collective action in addressing the complex challenges facing the world. He emphasized the NAM’s commitment to upholding principles of equality, justice, and non-interference in the affairs of sovereign nations.

The summit’s agenda includes comprehensive discussions on regional and global issues, with a focus on finding common solutions to shared challenges. Delegates are expected to engage in substantive deliberations to strengthen the NAM’s role in promoting peace, security, and sustainable development.

Uganda’s hosting of the 19th NAM Summit is a testament to the country’s growing influence and diplomatic standing. The event is not only an opportunity for Uganda to showcase its commitment to global cooperation but also a platform for member states to forge stronger ties and partnerships.

As the summit progresses, the international community is closely watching the deliberations, anticipating meaningful resolutions and collaborative initiatives. Ambassador Ayebare’s leadership during the summit is likely to leave a lasting impact on the NAM’s role in shaping the global agenda and promoting a world characterized by mutual respect and cooperation among nations.
