Latin America, the Caribbean Reaffirm their Status as Zone of Peace

Havana, May 11 (Prensa Latina) New conflicts threaten international peace and security in several regions of the world, but Latin America and the Caribbean is the exception, stated the representative of Mexico to ECLAC here today.

The Mexican undersecretary for Multilateral Affairs and Human Rights, Miguel Ruiz, underlined during the 37th session that the region suffers from problems such as violence and threats to public safety, for which it is necessary to generate solutions.

On the last day of the meeting of the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC), Ruiz highlighted the serious and major humanitarian crisis in the world and exemplified that there are more than 60 million refugees in the world, the largest number since the World War II.

Every day there are new flows of disordered migration due to these conflicts or other situations such as climate change, said the official.

He noted, on the other hand, that growth levels have not yet recovered after the 2008 crisis, which is a problem in both industrialized and developing countries, a situation that generates uncertainty, he said
