"As chair of the Non-Aligned Movement, Azerbaijan supports the peoples fighting against colonialism and aiming to be free," said Azerbaijan's President Ilham Aliyev as he addressed the participants of the International Conference on “Decolonization: Women's Empowerment and Development”, APA reports.

"Your participation at the Ministerial Meeting held in Baku as part of Azerbaijan's chairmanship of the Non-Aligned Movement on July 6 and October 20, 2023, at the headquarters of the UN Security Council in New York on September 22, and at this event in Baku dedicated to colonialism, its consequences and neocolonialism, which are of particular relevance to humanity, are evidence of Azerbaijan's support for this issue as chair of the Non-Aligned Movement", said the head of state.

Bringing the issue of fighting neocolonialism to the international community’s attention through all possible platforms is crucial, the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan emphasized: "In this regard, the activities of the 4th Committee of the UN General Assembly and the fight within international organizations should be stepped up. The role of women should be further enhanced, and their struggle on the path of decolonization should be strongly supported"
