Solution

The statement that NAM has become irrelevant today is not correct. The reasons for it are as given below :

(i) NAM contains some core values and enduring ideas. It is based on a recognition that decolonised states or newly independent states of Asia, Africa and Latin America share a historical affiliation and can become a powerful force if they come together.

(ii) It means that the poor and very small countries need not become followers of any of the big powers and that they could pursue an independent foreign policy.

(iii) NAM is based on a resolve to democratise the international system. It provides an alternative world order to redress the existing inequalities.

The above core ideas are still relevant today.
