EVO MORALES AYMA, President of Bolivia, expressing solidarity with the people of Mexico following that day’s earthquake, said that much of the promise of the United Nations had come to nothing. Rather than making progress, the world was slipping backwards. War and violent conflict had persisted, while 2017 was the hottest year in world history. Emphasizing that all countries must comply with the Paris Agreement, he said it was unjustifiable that the United States had decided to turn its back on that instrument. That country was among the main polluters and its Government had become a threat to Mother Earth, he said.
