H.E. Mr. Luis Gallegos

Statement Summary

LUIS GALLEGOS CHIRIBOGA, Minister for Foreign Affairs and Human Mobility of Ecuador, said that it is unthinkable that the world spends 30 times more on nuclear weapons than what is needed for global health.  Today’s global crises go beyond the objective of the United Nations founders, which was to end war, and they cannot be solved without the consensus and support of all.  The seventy-fifth anniversary of the United Nations is an opportunity to find pathways to overcome not only war, but also poverty and hunger, and to achieve a more balanced world in which human rights are respected.
