Mexican president proposes global five-year ceasefire

5 Aug 2022 2:10 p.m

Mexico’s President Andrés Manuel López Obrador believes that all military conflicts and trade wars must end. The world should agree on a truce for at least five years to deal with all crises.

At a press conference in Mexico City, Mexico’s President Andrés Manuel López Obrador presented his initiative. The world has recently experienced many crises such as the COVID-19 pandemic, fighting in Ukraine, tensions over Taiwan and a slowdown in economic growth. A ceasefire is needed to take action, the president said.

“Nations can agree on a truce of at least five years to deal with the crisis affecting peoples. A truce that will end war, confrontation and provocation. Once the fighting stops, things should stay as they are they are, particularly the war between Russia and Ukraine.”

The US, Russia and China should accept his proposal and submit it to the UN as well. No government in the world should act irresponsibly, Obrador said. During the truce, nations could work together to help the poor and promote economic development.

“No to provocation, no to war. We don’t want hegemonies in the world. It is not too much to ask the United States, Russia and China to accept this proposal, which could then be tabled in the United Nations.”

Obrador added that it is “not about good and evil,” but about putting the interests of ordinary people ahead of governments and business groups.

“Even if this sounds utopian, it is exactly what we need. There is no other way.”

When asked about Mexico’s stance on the Taiwan issue, Obrador stated that dialogue should take precedence over confrontation. Countries should stop trade wars and use the UN framework.

Mexico did not support sanctions against Russia. Obrador stated that the country “wants to maintain good relations with all governments”. The conflict should be resolved through dialogue. The President also announced that his country’s government would not supply arms to Ukraine.
