Leaders of the major independent Asian and African countries gathered at this Indonesian city from April 18-22, 1955. There, they first set in motion the concept of South-South solidarity.
Solidarity meant newly-independent countries of Africa and Asia gathering to seek common ground. A French writer dubbed this group “the Third World.” It was at the United Nations where the new independent governments found common ground. It all started in Bandung, 65 years ago.
