Bolivia Points out Interventionism as Worst Threat to Peace
United Nations, Jan 10 (Prensa Latina) Bolivia pointed out, at the United Nations (UN) Security Council, interventionism as the main threat to world peace and defended respect for sovereignty and non-intervention.
'We wonder: Would we be seeing a so serious situation in the Middle East and the North of Africa, if it were not because of interventionism, for that unilateral policy that violates the principles of the United Nations of change of regime?' warned Ambassador Sacha Llorenti during a discussion on prevention of conflicts and peace keeping.
According to the Bolivian diplomat, neocolonialism, imperial stances and the existing inequality also put humanity in danger.
In that reference, he criticized, at the UN Security Council forum, the back-yard policies, influence zones and world distribution, as well as the international approach by the United States of declaring itself 'exceptional and indispensable.'
Llorenti mentioned recent reports that revealed almost 50 percent of the wealth concentrated in just one percent of the world population.
Doesn't all this threaten peace? he insisted during the first public speech by Bolivia as non-permanent member of the 15-member authority for the 2017-2018 period.
The Bolivian ambassador defended the role of multilateralism and increasing the capacity of the UN to prevent conflicts and mediate effectively to solve them.
