The president of Ecuador, Lenin Moreno, defended in the United Nations that there is no conflict that can’t be solved by speaking and asked the leaders to promote peace in the world.
“No problem is so deep that it cannot be solved if there is the will of all parties through discussion and negotiation, instead of using force and violence,” Moreno said.
The Ecuadorian president expressed himself in his speech at the summit on peace that the UN General Assembly celebrates on Monday and commemorates the centenary of the birth of Nelson Mandela.
Moreno, who called the historic South African president one of the “greatest men in history”, claimed the relevance of his legacy and his idea that “the best weapon” is always “sit and talk”.
“World peace is still a pending task,” said Moreno, who considered that in order to resolve conflicts, “honest, but above all humble people are needed”.
Moreno defended that it is the “duty” of the rulers to get the world to “reign freedom” and stressed the importance of working in the “construction of new nations for our children.”
The 193 countries of the UN today adopted a political declaration in which the leaders commit themselves to “redouble their efforts to build a just, peaceful, prosperous and just world”.
The non-binding text reiterates the commitment of the member states to the fundamental principles of the founding charter of the United Nations, such as respect for the sovereignty of States, their territorial integrity and their political independence. (I)
