Foreign Relations Secretary José Antonio Meade confirmed Mexico’s commitment to unity and cooperation in Latin America and the Caribbean and its support for Ecuador as the new leader of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (Celac).
Meade attended the Third Summit of Celac, held in San José, Costa Rica, representing President Enrique Peña Nieto.
The Mexican Foreign Relations Secretariat said in a message that this meeting led to an agreement from 33 states in the region in favor of transparent public policies that make it possible to reduce the inequality divide.
The delegation heads of the member states shared their experiences on the subject of fighting hunger and poverty, as well as the way in which these issues contribute to social development.
They also discussed the challenges the region faces heading toward the United Nations post-2015 Agenda and reflected on Celac’s results as a mechanism for cooperation and dialogue three years after its founding.
Secretary Meade Kuribreña talked to his counterparts about the social programs Mexico has implemented to boost productivity, income generation and economic well-being, as well as the public policies on accountability and transparency, which are fundamental for ensuring good public administration.
During the meeting the heads of state of Venezuela, Bolivia, Ecuador, Nicaragua, El Salvador and various Caribbean islands raised their voices to request the United States lift its embargo of Cuba.
The leaders also approved 26 special resolutions on the environment, education, health and regional policy. They accepted the action plan for food and agriculture presented by the United Nations to erase hunger and malnutrition in the region and approved support of Argentina in its claim of the Falkland islands.
At the end of the meeting, Ecuador occupied the pro tempore presidency with the commitment to lead its work up to the IV summit in 2016.
