Mexico will put forth a plan to end the conflict in Ukraine.
At the official celebrations for the anniversary of Mexico’s Independence Day, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador stated that his Foreign Minister, Marcelo Ebrard, will present a peace plan at the United Nations General Assembly, that will seek to broker a truce in the Ukraine war and propose the creation of a commission to implement it.
The commission would include Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi, Pope Francis and UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres.
“The peacekeeping mission must immediately seek the cessation of hostilities in Ukraine and the start of direct talks with President Zelensky of Ukraine and President Putin of Russia. Additionally, this committee, according to our proposal, should also achieve a multinational agreement to agree to a truce of at least five years approved unanimously by the UN security council and that implies the immediate suspension of military actions and provocations, as well as nuclear and missile tests,” said President AMLO.
He continued; “Politics is the only instrument we have to avoid war; however, interest groups located in positions of governmental or economic power take pains to lead politics towards armed conflict and once they have made this mistake, instead of correcting it, they choose to deepen it without caring about the suffering they inflict on humanity and the damage they cause to the stability of nations and the well-being of societies.”
President López Obrador warned that without peace there will be no economic growth or justice; “Governing should not be an exercise in hegemony for domination, it should search for the well-being of the people. Power only makes sense and becomes a virtue when it is put at the service of others.”
Evo Morales was a guest of honor in Mexico City for the celebrations. In an interview with Mexican outlet Milenio, he praised President AMLO’s leadership, saying, “what President Andrés López Obrador is doing is exceptional in political and economic matters, we are surprised by the strong social support he receives (..) Mexico is at the forefront of the struggle with López Obrador.”
