“There can be no exclusions, we should all be here,” stressed the head of state of the southern nation in his speech before the controversial meeting.
For the Chilean ruler, the region must be unhappy “with being an exclusive club of countries that think the same or similar.”
“The time has come,” he stressed, “to leave polarization and fragmentation behind and take action; to be a single voice from America to the world.”
Boric also urged developed countries “to meet the goal they set for themselves in the 1970s, from the Development Assistance Committee (of the OECD), of allocating 0.7 percent of their wealth to cooperation.
“If we don’t change our course, our very existence as Humanity is threatened. We have to do it together, we can’t do it separately. Either we save ourselves together or we’re going to sink separately”
“Let’s deal appropriately with the tremendous shared responsibility that we have,” emphasized the Chilean leader, who will return to his country tonight after five days in the United States.
