“We are currently the object of French colonial policy” at an
event entitled ‘Towards the total elimination of colonialism’,
Azernews reports, citing Luc Carole of the
Martinique Freedom Party.
“The strategy of the French state is to replace the local
population with the French population. The replacement is being
carried out through genocide.
The use of poisonous substances in agriculture has resulted in
92 percent of our people getting cancer. France claims that cancer
is embedded in our genetics. France talks about democracy but does
not implement what it says,” he adds.
It should be noted that an event on the theme “Towards the total
elimination of colonialism” is being held at the Baku Congress
Centre in the framework of the Ministerial Meeting of the
Coordinating Bureau of the Non-Aligned Movement.
The 18th Summit of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) was held in

by delegations from more than 120 countries and was preceded by a
“Senior Officials Meeting” and a “Ministerial Meeting” on October
21-24. The summit was convened under the framework of the “Final
Document” adopted at the Ministerial Meeting of the NAM
Coordinating Bureau in Caracas, Venezuela from July 18-21.
At the summit, a special event titled “Towards the Total
Elimination of Colonialism” was held at the Baku Congress Centre.
The event was organized to discuss the importance of ending
colonialism and to promote the ideals of sovereignty,

The Non-Aligned Movement was established in 1961 in Belgrade,
Yugoslavia by the initiative of President of Yugoslavia Josip Broz
Tito, President of Egypt Gamal Abdel Nasser, Prime Minister of
India Jawaharlal Nehru, President of Indonesia Sukarno, and
President of Ghana Kwame Nkrumah. As of October 2019, the

Non-Aligned Movement in promoting the declaration of the
“International Day of Multilateralism and Diplomacy for Peace”. She
also called for a renewed commitment to multilateralism and
international law as the only effective formula to achieve a
feeling of sustainable and lasting peace.
The 18th Summit of the Non-Aligned Movement was an important
