Speaking at the Summit, Xiomara Castro called for the establishment of a realistic sustainable development agenda.
She urged G77+China member states to strongly reject and not to comply with coercive measures such as blockades against member countries, while she strongly condemned sanctions against Nicaragua and Venezuela.
Castro stressed the pressing need for a permanent commitment not to wage war and to develop strong negotiation mechanisms and discussions for conflict resolution.
The Honduran leader alluded to the significance of establishing a world scientific community capable of reversing the serious process of climate change, as well as the rescue and restoration of the environment and natural resources.
Before high-level representatives of more than a hundred countries belonging to the G77+China, Xiomara Castro called on member states to double down on unreservedly respecting the self-determination of peoples.
“We will try to impose our lifestyle, culture, religion or our economic model on any of our members under no circumstances,” she stressed.
On the other hand, she added that for Honduras to achieve democratic socialism is a mission and raison d’être to radically change and improve the quality of life of the people, and called to respect the popular consultation as the chosen way to achieve that goal.
“The time has come to put an end to backyards because we are not pieces on a board of interest of the apology of dependence; our nations must not continue to suffer the massive privatization of their territories,” she emphasized.
