During his speech at the XIX. Summit of Heads of State and Government of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM), Moncada urged to contribute to a new multipolar world order, with the rise of new intercontinental regional actors and greater cooperation between developing countries.
Multipolarity is the right response of our developing countries to the break with imperial hegemony, which has exposed the planet and the majority of the human population to war, environmental destruction, destruction, instability, poverty and hunger, explained the Chancellor.
He added that this new world order is based on the principles of mutual respect, non-discrimination and sovereign equality between States, regardless of their geographical or population size, military or economic power.
“Also based on measures and actions respecting the Charter of the United Nations as well as universal values such as peace, development, justice, social justice, democracy and freedom, giving priority to negotiation, harmony, non-interference and mutual cooperation” and the peaceful resolution of controversies “, he emphasized.
The Sandinista executive stressed the need to continue the proposal for a global consensus based on multilateralism and cooperation that will enable countries to successfully implement the 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals.
He stressed the importance of eradicating poverty and inequality, reducing hunger and poor health and education, and, in addition to achieving climate justice, urgently meeting the commitments of the Paris Agreement, including limiting the rise in global temperature to 1.5 degrees Celsius.
In another part of the speech, Moncada strongly condemned the Israeli government's atrocities against the Palestinian population in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank.
In this sense, Nicaragua reaffirmed its solidarity with Palestine and joined friendly peoples and governments in supporting an immediate ceasefire and an end to the Israeli army's genocidal actions and attacks in the coastal enclave.
Likewise, Nicaragua welcomed South Africa's lawsuit filed last December at the International Court of Justice (ICJ) against Israel for violating its obligations under the 1948 Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide.
He supported the request of the Palestinian delegation in its legitimate right to be recognized as a full member of the United Nations and to be integrated into it and international organizations.
On the other hand, the diplomat thanked the NAM for the support it gave his country by including in the final document of the summit the case of Nicaragua against the United States before the International Court of Justice; and calling on Managua to comply with that court's 1986 ruling and compensate the Central American nation.
