On July 28, 2022 Chargé d'Affairs of the Embassy, Counselor Faisal Jazaa Al-Mutairi, received at Baku International Airport, His Excellency the Speaker of the National Assembly, Mr. Marzouq Ali Al-Ghanim, and the accompanying delegate, who visited the Republic of Azerbaijan to participate in the conference of the Parliamentary Network of the Non-Aligned Movement entitled "Strengthening the Role of National Parliaments in Promoting Peace and Development" held in Baku during 29 june- 1 july 2022. The Chairman of the Parliamentary Working Group on Azerbaijani-Kuwaiti Relations in the Azerbaijani National Assembly, Mr. Vahid Ahmadov had also participated at the receiving ceremony.
The opening ceremony of the Conference of the Parliamentary Network of the Non-Aligned Movement entitled “Strengthening the Role of National Parliaments in Promoting Peace and Sustainable Development in the World” was held in the Azerbaijani capital Baku under the patronage and attendance of His Excellency Mr. Ilham Aliyev. About 50 countries at the level of Parliament Speakers (16 countries, including the State of Kuwait) and Deputy Speakers of parliaments participated in the conference. The Azerbaijani President delivered an opening speech at the conference, in which he spoke about his country's role within the Non-Aligned Movement as the current chair of the movement (for the period 2019-2023), explaining that it played a prominent role in mobilizing member states and the entire international community to confront the Corona pandemic.
His Excellency the Speaker of the National Assembly, Mr. Marzouq Ali Al-Ghanim, also delivered a speech at the conference, in which he stressed that the need for a third, principled and unbiased voice calling for the application of the law and the establishment of justice is still urgent and necessary, especially with the emergence and persistence of dangers in various regions of the world. He stated that the continuation of the file of the Palestinian cause and the Zionist occupation of Palestine without a just solution and the continuation of bloodshed and persistence in the occupation, oppression, displacement and abuse is a realistic and tangible witness to the persistence of dangers in the world. He warned that the biggest challenge facing the movement is to strengthen faith in its first idea, an idea that has not fallen out despite everything, the idea of being a mediator and moderate, collective and not be wood for others' fire, stressing that Non-alignment is not a geographically isolated regional organization. What, rather, a movement whose members number more than half the number of countries in the world, distributed over all continents, races, religions, cultures and sects, stressing the need for cooperation and joint action to solve issues.
