Earlier this week, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Chile, Alfredo Moreno, was received by the Secretary-General of the United Nations, Ban Ki-Moon. The meeting took place at UN headquarters where both officials exchanged views on various issues, particularly on matters relating to Latin America and the role of Chile in the region.

The Secretary-General mentioned the different activities Chile has engaged in to contribute to international peace and security, such as peace operations and providing humanitarian aid to Haiti. The Secretary-General also discussed Chile’s role in the peace process between Colombia and the FARC (Revolutionary armed forces of Columbia), and the formation of CELAC and its first summit held in Santiago.

At the meeting, Minister Moreno informed the Secretary-General about Chile’s intention to integrate in the UN Security Council, as a non-permanent member, for the period 2014-2015. In this context, both shared views on the tense situation prevailing on the Korean peninsula and in another vein, the impact of the recently approved Arms Trade Treaty.

Minister Alfredo Moreno is in New York to participate in the high level meeting “The United Nations and Global Economic Governance”, being held at the UN headquarters.
