The objectives of the Non - Aligned Movement (NAM)

The NAM is an organization comprising of less developed countries in the world. Its emergence could be traced to the 1950s after a number of Asian countries attained political independence.

In 1954, India and China signed a peace treaty known as Panschila, which marked the end of their hostility over the ownership of the Tibet Region. The principles of Panschila became the guiding phylosophy of the NAM. They included non - aggression, non- interference, mutual respect, equality and peaceful coexsistance.
