“Mexico condemns the acts of aggression perpetrated by the Russian Federation against Ukraine, we call on the parties to an immediate cessation of hostilities, we recognize the sovereignty, political independence and territorial integrity of Ukraine.
“And we support the efforts of the UN Secretary General in the search for a diplomatic solution to prevent the suffering of the civilian population,” said the diplomat.
The UN Security Council rejected the resolution that would condemn Russia’s military operations in Ukraine , given that the former exercised the right of veto that they have as a permanent member of this council.
Although the vote was 11 votes in favor, 3 abstentions and one against and in theory an agreement would be reached to condemn the aggressions, Russia exercised its veto right over the vote in the council.
