As of August 7, 2012.
 The Non-Aligned Movement is an international organization established during the Cold War, uniting 116 countries which do not consider themselves under the influence of any of the great powers. Originally they were countries which did not want to identify themselves with either the West or the Eastern Block. After the collapse of the USSR the organization lost a great deal of its relevance and today focuses on humanitarian issues such as the elimination of poverty, economic development and opposition to colonialism and imperialism. Most of the member states are Third World countries. They are planning a summit meeting in Iran at the end of August.
