At least 105 countries will be represented in the Special Non-Aligned Movement Ministerial Meeting (SNAMMM) on Interfaith Dialogue and Cooperation for Peace and Development in Manila from March 16 to 18.

Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) Undersecretary Rafael Seguis, who is also NAM National Organizing Committee Secretary General, said the SNAMMM highlights the Philippines' leading role in interfaith dialogue worldwide.

"The SNAMMM is the biggest inter-governmental meeting in recent years, and the first of its kind ever to be hosted by the Philippines. It aims to promote interfaith dialogue and cooperation to cultivate a culture of respect, tolerance, understanding and harmony among people of different faiths, cultures and religions," Seguis said in an article on the DFA website.

Other NAM member-countries that will be sending high-level representatives include Chile, Korea, Kuwait, Peru, Thailand, Togo, Tunisia, Uganda, the United Arab Emirates, Venezuela and Vietnam.
