It is Possible to Eliminate Mexico's Hunger, Says Enrique Pena Nieto

go to original
May 2, 2013

After stating that, “We must all ensure that Mexico is a country without hunger,” President Enrique Peña Nieto confirmed the absolute conviction, beginning with the strong commitment of the government, that it is possible to end the hunger that unfortunately afflicts millions of Mexicans.

In the event at which the government and the United Nations Organization for Food and Agriculture (FAO) signed a Memorandum of Understanding for the National Crusade against Hunger, the President said that the eradication of hunger is a moral obligation and a requirement for transforming Mexico.

In the presence of José Graziano Da Silva, head of FAO, President Peña Nieto stressed that under the National Crusade against Hunger, a state policy that combines the efforts of society and government, “We assume the elementary responsibility of shielding social programs from any electoral purposes, and investigating and punishing those who seek to use them for that purpose.”

“It is only by joining forces that we will be able to advance towards an inclusive and prosperous Mexico that will extend its benefits to all sectors, especially those with least, and want and must make Mexico a true society of rights,” he explained.

The president said that in their daily lives, all Mexicans should enjoy the rights enshrined in our Constitution, beginning with the basic right to food.
