Cuban Foreign Affairs Minister Felipe Perez Roque travelled to Egypt and Algeria to officially invite their presidents to the Non-Aligned Movement Summit Havana will host next September.

Perez Roque is also slated to visit Sudan, where he will attend the Summit of the Heads of State of the Arab League between March 26 and 27.

Cuba was invited to the Arab summit to brief participants about preparations of the meeting of NAM, which brings together 114 countries.

The Foreign minister said he will meet with several Arab representatives to inform of his nation�s views to strengthen and harmonize the NAM work, defend multilateralism, international law and the right to development.

He stated the NAM Summit will allow discussing ways to boost, reshuffle and activate its work, in order to turn the movement into a key player in international relations.
