Equatorial Guinea Active at UN Security Council, Calls for Inclusive Dialogue in Nicaragua

The Republic of Equatorial Guinea, through its Ambassador and Permanent Representative to the United Nations (UN) Security Council, Anatolio Ndong Mba, called for inclusive dialogue in Nicaragua to light the country out of its current crisis.

The Security Council meeting, which was chaired by the United States of America, focused on the current human rights and security crisis ongoing in the Central American country.

Equatorial Guinea highlighted the importance of attention to the vulnerable, their social layers and classification, and recommendations for further strengthening of human rights.

Equatorial Guinea has made great strides over the years and significant progress on human rights, including the temporary amnesty against the death penalty, the plan of action to combat human trafficking, the implementation of the Children’s Parliament, the improvement of education for all Equatorial Guineans, and the complete abolition of child labor.

Equatorial Guinea has ratified numerous international conventions regarding human rights, and is active at the United Nations (UN) as a non-permanent member of the Security Council, where it strongly advocates for peace and security throughout the world. Equatorial Guinea at the UN has urged its fellow UN member states to prohibit the sale of arms to mercenaries and other organizations who are considered human rights violators.
