Guyana via Turkey

Non-Aligned Movement Monument

This pecular card come from my friend Neslihan in Turkey.  She was cleaning out her non-Turkish cards and sent this one to me of a monument in Guyana.  

The monument commemorates the 192 Conference of Foreign Ministers of Non-aligned countries held in Guyana from August 8th through 11th, 1972.  

The leaders of this movement were the then-presidents of Egypt, Ghana, India, and Yugoslavia, Neslihan pointed out, claiming that Yugoslavia under Josip Borz Tito was some how "non-aligned" with the two great cold-war powers of the Soviet Union and the United States is amazing since Yugoslavia was definitely in the Warsaw Pact!
