According to the article, President Ilham Aliyev took part in the opening ceremony of the event at the invitation of President of Algeria Abdelmadjid Tebboune, as a guest of honor.

"Chairing over the Non-Aligned Movement, Azerbaijan plays an important role in the international arena. The Non-Aligned Movement, which unites 120 countries, is the second largest international organization after the UN. Azerbaijan has been chairing it since 2019," the article said.

“We initiated a Special Session of the UN General Assembly devoted to COVID-19, which was held in December 2020. All these initiatives had one objective - the objective to help the countries, which are in need, to help the countries and to mobilize resources, and to help the countries, which cannot afford to acquire vaccines," President Ilham Aliyev said at the 31st Arab League Summit, whose statement was cited in the article.
