The 16th Ministerial Conference and Commemorative Meeting of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) came to an end in Bali, Indonesia on Friday.

Marty Natalegawa, Indonesian Foreign Minister, said in his closing remarks that the meeting had been a fruitful conference and a meaningful commemorative meeting.

He said that the deliberations yielded an 127-page Final Document that reflected the shared vision and common position of the Movement, which sent strong message on the need to step up NAM 's efforts on the reform of the United Nations and the global economic and financial system.

The final document as well as the Bali Commemorative Declaration issued on Wednesday also prescribed measures to address emerging challenges in the world of 21st century, called for enhanced international cooperation to address challenges that defy national solution alone, he added.

Marty said that the meeting also affirmed the admission of Azerbaijan and Fiji into the NAM family, and reaffirmed the commitment of member countries to democratic values and the promotion and protection of human rights.

Besides, as a conclusion to the concentration on Palestine throughout the meeting, Indonesian foreign minister said that NAM called for the release of Palestinian political prisioners and denounced the brutality they had suffered from Israeli government.

The 16th NAM summit would be held next year in Teheran, he added.
