UN General Assembly 67th session: Statement delivered at the General Debate - Mexico

A statement delivered to the 67th General Assembly annual General Debate by the President of Mexico. Recalling that each and every country represented in the Assembly was dealing with weather anomalies, either unprecedented flooding, lasting drought or tornadoes, he enforced Mexico's commitment to tackle climate change and urged other nations to be equally committed. He added that Member States must not fall victim to the “false dilemma” that they must either tackle poverty or mitigate the impacts of climate change and stated that both concerns can be addressed at the same time.
