The initiative by Mexico´s President, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, proposes the establishment of a truce, between the parts and in the battlefield, that would allow for the creation of a special... 28/04/2022 | 17:15:08 In Mexico, we are extremely aware of the risks and dangers threatening democracies throughout the world.
