In Brazil, Kirchner Suggests Multilateralism to End Poverty

Multilateralism should be the way to achieve the objectives set by the United Nations in the Millenium Goals program and engender effective measures to promote social inclusion and eliminate poverty and hunger.

This was the position defended yesterday by the President of Argentina, Néstor Kirchner, at the Second Plenary Meeting of the South America – Arab Countries Summit. The theme was “Political Dialogue and Cultural Exchange.”


According to Kirchner, multilateralism is vital to preserving international peace and security.


“It is fundamental for guaranteeing international rights and strengthening the capacity of international bodies as trustees of disarmament. The absence of multilateralism in international relations places the world at risk of being without laws and rules,” he said.


Kirchner recalled the large Arab community that lives in South America and pointed out that 3.5 million of them live in Argentina.


“This community has made a valuable contribution in academic, political, economic, cultural, artistic, and religious fields,” he observed.


The Argentinean President also said that his country hopes to intensify already existing ties with Arab countries in all areas, including trade.


Kirchner commended the hospitality with which Brazil received the Summit’s participants.


“As always, Brazil is demonstrating its generous hospitality, and I feel very much a part of this initiative and proclaim my support for its success,” he affirmed.
