Pittsburgh. Mexico has proposed to the United Nations to create a committee to stop the Russian-Ukrainian war. The committee proposes to include Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Pope Francis and UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres to broker a lasting peace between Russia and Ukraine. The resolution was placed during the UN Security Council debate on Ukraine in New York. The proposal was presented by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Mexico, Marcelo Luis Ebrard Casabón.

According to PTI, Modi, who met Putin on the sidelines of the 22nd meeting of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization in Samarkand, Uzbekistan, told the Russian leader: “The era of today is not that of the war”. This remark by the Indian Prime Minister was welcomed by Western countries including the United States of America, France and the United Kingdom.

Casabón proposed to the UN, saying that Mexico, based on its pacifist position, believes that the international community should now do its best to achieve peace. In this regard, I would like to share with you Mexican President Andres Manuel López Obrador’s proposal to strengthen the mediation efforts of UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres through the formation of a Committee for Dialogue and Peace in Ukraine. If possible, this should involve the participation of other Heads of State and Government, including His Excellency Narendra Modi and Pope Francis.

Casabon added that, as the Secretary-General said, it is time to work for peace and commit to peace. The Mexican Foreign Minister argued that peace can only be achieved through dialogue, diplomacy and the construction of effective political channels. He stressed that it was the right time to seriously look at peace.
