“We can not cope with earthquakes, we can not face the wind, but we can pool resources if we hold the waste,” he reiterated.
The Uruguayan dignitary highlighted the importance of nuclear disarmament but questioned their counterparts on the veracity of a zone free of nuclear weapons, because “how will be nuclear free our lands, when nuclear submarines roam our waters.”
He called to think like kind “if we continue to think as a country and social class, thinking only of our own, civilization is doomed.”
The president ended his speech with a statement that calls for reflection: “If we do not sow in the minds of those who are to come, we will be beholders of misfortunes.”
