i. A non aligned country does not align itself with any power bloc.
ii. It does not join military alliances like NATO, Warsaw Pact, etc.
iii. It protects its sovereignty completely and takes its foreign policy decisions independent of outside influence.
iv. Non alignment is not passive and hence the states involved actively participate in world affairs and international politics.
v. It explicitly upholds the rights of all people to freedom and justice without any discrimination.
