Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebard insisted this Thursday andn the creation of a “mediation committee”, made up of various Heads of State and Governmentwhich promotes the end of the war in Ukraine, during his speech at the UN General Assembly.
That committee would be promoted by personalities such as Pope Francis, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and UN Secretary General António Guterres; In addition, the proposal, promoted by President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, also promotes a five-year global truce.
“The President of Mexico, aware of the individual and collective responsibility that we have, proposes that a delegation of Heads of State and Government encourage and accompany the efforts of the Secretary General (Guterres) to promote measures to promote confidence, lost today between the Russian Federation and Ukraine,” Ebrard said in his speech at the UN.
This is so that “the conditions can be created, as soon as possible, to bring the parties closer to the mechanisms for the peaceful settlement of disputes that the Charter of the United Nations indicates.”
The foreign minister said that “in the face of the paralysis” of the UN Security Council they must “offer, among all, a diplomatic channel complementary to the existing ones to interact with the parties in conflictwith a view to reducing tensions and channeling the necessary mediation”.
He recalled that the proposal has already been shared in recent days with the UN Secretary General, with the parties involved, as well as with the delegations of India and the Holy See.
He pointed out that the Security Council “has not been able to fulfill the mandate conferred on it by the United Nations charter as it has failed to prevent the war and has not taken the measures to put an end to the armed aggression.”
In addition, it has not managed to “direct any diplomatic process to seek a solution through dialogue and negotiation” and “has not been able to ensure that all the required humanitarian assistance arrives,” he declared.
