Turkish President advocates in UN for closer ties with Latin America

Title: Turkish president advocates at the UN for closer ties with Latin United Nations, Sep 19 (Prensa Latina) The Turkish president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, advocated today for closer ties with Latin America and for a profound reform of the United Nations Security Council, as well as for strengthening international cooperation.

When speaking in the debate of the high-level session of the UN General Assembly, the Turkish leader pointed out that in this period of work, Türkiye intends to transform its relations with Latin America into an alliance.

The Turkish president, who recalled that wars only leave losers and peace agreements, winners, warned that it was dangerous to make plans with violent groups, since you never know how those terrorists will act, in the end, he said.

At the same time, he called for a true reform of the UN, which goes beyond the possibilities of the five permanent members of its Security Council.

Erdogan thanked, on the other hand, the solidarity extended to his country by dozens of nations, after the earthquakes of February 6, which left some 50,000 dead and more than 250,000 buildings destroyed.

The head of state also advocated maintaining the Mediterranean region as a zone of peace, for which, he stated, respect for everyone’s rights will be necessary, alluding to the dispute he maintains with Cyprus.

During his speech, the Turkish president supported the purposes of the UN development agenda for 2030 and the need to protect against climate change. In that sense, he highlighted the Zero Waste movement in his country to contribute to that purpose.

Erdogan supported the possibility of resuming negotiations between Israel and the Palestinian Authority, defended the right to a Palestinian state, and spoke out for stability in the Balkans, especially in relation to the dispute between Kosovo and Serbia.

When referring to the possibility of recovering the operation of the so-called grain agreement, signed at the time by Ukraine, Türkiye, the UN and Russia, he stated that, if put into operation, it will allow the movement of more than a million tons to countries in need.

The arrangement allows Ukraine to remove merchant ships from several of its ports, including Odessa, at the time mined by Kiev, in the midst of the war operation that Russia began in February 2021 to protect the population of Donbas and demilitarize Ukraine.
