Costa Rica, Mexico Hope to Reform U.N. Security Council
MEXICO (AFP) – Mexican president Vicente Fox and his Costa Rican counterpart Abel Pacheco have issued a statement saying they believe it necessary to reform the United Nations Security Council.
“The Security Council, the international organization with the primary responsibility of maintaining international peace and security, should be reformed to operate in a democratic, efficient and transparent manner,” said the joint statement, issued Tuesday after the two Presidents met in private at the start of Pacheco’s two-day visit to Mexico.
The statement also said they will join forces to strengthen institutions such as the Organization of American States (OAS), the Plan Puebla-Panama and the Free-Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA).
