The head of the Mexican Foreign Ministry called the idea of ​​sending weapons to Ukraine unreasonable.

Latin America does not support and considers it unreasonable the idea of ​​sending weapons to Ukraine to prolong the conflict, and is in favor of finding a political solution, said Mexican Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard.

“I don’t think that sending weapons to prolong the conflict has support in Latin America … It also doesn’t seem very reasonable because the cost would be very high for the EU, for Russia and to some extent for everyone else,” Ebrard said.

He noted that the propensity of Latin America, which he sees, “is to try to find or imagine how a political solution to this conflict can be achieved.”

Many Latin American countries disagree with Washington and Brussels on when the conflict in Ukraine should end, stating that the focus should be on an immediate ceasefire without preconditions, not on arms deliveries.


Earlier, the presidents of Argentina and Colombia, Alberto Fernandez and Gustavo Petro, in an article for the Monde newspaper, advocated stepping up measures to achieve a ceasefire in Ukraine. In January, Mexican President Andres Manuel López Obrador condemned Berlin’s decision to send tanks to Ukraine, saying it was made against the will of citizens and under pressure from local media. And Brazilian President Luis Inacio da Silva said that his country was not interested in sending ammunition to be used in the conflict in Ukraine.
