Mexican President Peña Nieto Addresses the UN General Assembly
UN News Center
Peña Nieto, President of Mexico: “To face the challenges of the 21st century, we need a new institutional design
for the United Nations, with a renewed commitment towards peace and security, and foremost with a development agenda that
is comprehensive and inclusive,” said Mr. Peña Nieto.
Mexico's hosting next year of the First Conference of State Parties of the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT)
is an opportunity to work together to avoid arms from hurting children and the vulnerable. Mr. Peña Nieto
called on the UN to recommit to the rights of girls, boys and teenagers by launching a “global action to address psychological
and physical bullying while strengthening basic values.” On a national level, the “Pact for Mexico”- an agreement between political parties, has spurred action to renew
political and electoral institutions, as well as judiciary and accountability systems.
“Building on this ground-breaking political agreement Mexicans dared to improve the quality
of education, to make the job market more flexible, and to combat those who monopolize and engage in anti-competitive practices,”
said Peña Nieto.
