3. Wide shot, delegates
4. SOUNDBITE (Spanish) Ivan Duque, President, Colombia:
“Today I call on the international community to strengthen multilateralism in the area of health and to make progress in vaccine distribution equity. Gentlemen delegates, this is our moral duty. If delays in vaccine distribution equity for all nations continue, humankind will be exposed to new variants that will pray on us with renewed ferocity. Global immunity requires solidarity so as to prevent hoarding by some, while others are in need.”

6. SOUNDBITE (Spanish) Ivan Duque, President, Colombia:
“Colombia is confronting the pandemic, acting against climate change, and facing the worst migratory crisis in the planet; the crisis of millions of Venezuelans who run away from infamy and dictatorship. Working together with the United Nations Organization and the office of the High Commissioner for Refugees Filippo Grandi, we have made great progress, such as giving temporary protection status to close to 1.8 million Venezuelan migrants who live in our country.”
7. Med shot, Colombia delegation
8. SOUNDBITE (Spanish) Ivan Duque, President, Colombia:
“Dialogue between the Interim government of Venezuela - which embodies democratic resistance - and the narco-dictatorship, provides a measure of hope, but does not allow us to be naïve. The only effective outcome from this dialogue, would be to call as soon as possible for free and transparent presidential elections under close international observation.”

10. SOUNDBITE (Spanish) Ivan Duque, President, Colombia:
“Each gram of cocaine consumed in those nations that generate demand, mean a homicide and an ecocide in Colombia. Because for each hectare of Coca being sowed, two hectares of tropical rainforest are destroyed. To confront this worrisome increase in consumption around the world is urgent, and it is time for the international community to act with co-responsibility.”

STORYLINE:

Colombian President Ivan Duque today (21 Sep) said it was a “moral duty” for the international community “to strengthen multilateralism in the area of health and to make progress in vaccine distribution equity.”

Duque told the General Assembly’s General Debate that “if delays in vaccine distribution equity for all nations continue, humankind will be exposed to new variants that will pray on us with renewed ferocity.”

Global immunity, he said, “requires solidarity so as to prevent hoarding by some, while others are in need.”

The Colombian President said, “Colombia is confronting the pandemic, acting against climate change, and facing the worst migratory crisis in the planet; the crisis of millions of Venezuelans who run away from infamy and dictatorship,” and noted that “working together with the United Nations Organization and the office of the High Commissioner for Refugees Filippo Grandi, we have made great progress, such as giving temporary protection status to close to 1.8 million Venezuelan migrants who live in our country.”

Further on Venezuela, he said, “dialogue between the Interim government of Venezuela - which embodies democratic resistance - and the narco-dictatorship, provides a measure of hope, but does not allow us to be naïve. The only effective outcome from this dialogue, would be to call as soon as possible for free and transparent presidential elections under close international observation.”

Turning to the issue of drug trafficking, Duque said, “each gram of cocaine consumed in those nations that generate demand, mean a homicide and an ecocide in Colombia. Because for each hectare of Coca being sowed, two hectares of tropical rainforest are destroyed. To confront this worrisome increase in consumption around the world is urgent, and it is time for the international community to act with co-responsibility.”
