Mexico City /
President Andrés Manuel López Obrador charged that the rejection of his proposal to create a dialogue committee to end the Russian invasion of Ukraine occurs due to sectarianism or elite interests, this after the adviser to the Ukrainian president criticized the president’s plan.
Through his Twitter account, the President once again shared his speech of September 16, where he proposed to the UN establish a five-year truce in favor of peace among all nations.
“I repeat the speech of the proposal to achieve peace altered by the war in Russia and Ukraine. I do it because many do not know about it and others reject it due to sectarianism or elite interests.”
However, it is a duty to try to save lives and prevent suffering in those countries. It is in the middle to stop inflation and the economic and welfare crisis throughout the world. 2/2 pic.twitter.com/MLtnEyl8ta

He thus responded to questioning of Mykhailo Podolyak, adviser to the head of the office of the President of UkraineVolodimir Zelenski, who described as a “Russian plan” the lopezobradorist approach of creating a dialogue committee to end the Russian invasion.
The Ukrainian official criticized yesterday in a message on social networks those who they use war for their public relations.
In the speech, the federal president points out that “lThe UN remains inactive, prey to formalism and political inefficiency that leaves it in a merely ornamental role. Even more reprehensible is the behavior of the great powers that, explicitly or silently, that they position themselves before the conflict only to serve their hegemonic interests”.
And to achieve this, he proposed that a committee for dialogue and peace be constituted, which would be integrated, “if it is accepted and there is a willingness to participate of the possible mediators”, by the head of State of India, NarendraModi; of the Vatican, the Pope Francisco; the UN Secretary General, Anthony Guterres; as well as the presidents of Russia and Ukraine, Vladimir Putin Y Volodymyr Zelenskyrespectively.
