MR. MURRAY ON ROSTRUM AND SPEAKING.
MR. FRANCISCO VIZCAINO MURRAY: "Mexico, my country, has joined the campaign against ecocide. Our Government supports with significant interest the motions, studies or actions in favour of the improvement of the environment. There is a close relationship between development and environmental matters and this should be one of the principal preoccupations of this Conference and of the future works. A large part of the problems which face the countries of the Third World, with regard to environment, can be solved in proportion to the improvement of the social and economic conditions. We are pleased that the United Nations Organisation, from its high and exceptional level, sponsors this meeting in line with its declaration of principles, for it will be decisive for the future of humankind."
