During the 70th United Nations General Assembly gathering in New York City, more than 140 heads of state and government are expected to weigh in during a weeklong debate.
Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto made a call on the world community to overcome its inertia and take a different approach to dealing with illegal drugs.
“In Mexico, we believe in a more effective, more just and more humane response,” he said at the United Nations General Assembly. “The center of attention should be on the well-being and the dignity of the people.”
Like other leaders who took to the podium Monday, Peña Nieto praised the United Nations for helping to promote peace in the decades since it was formed after World War II.
¿The world would not be the same without the United Nations organization,¿ he said.
Peña Nieto urged world leaders to treat migrants with respect and repeated his country’s call to the United States to end the trade embargo against Cuba.
