The presidents and representatives of seven South American countries signed on Friday the “Leticia Pact for the Amazon” to coordinate the preservation of the natural resources of the most biodiverse area in the world.
“Here we are signing a pact where we coordinate and work harmoniously for common goals. It motivates us to protect the Amazon and to do prevention and mitigation work when risks such as forest fires occur,” said Colombian President Iván Duque.
The pact was also signed by the presidents of Peru, Martín Vizcarra; Bolivia, Evo Morales; Ecuador, Lenín Moreno, as well as the vice president of Suriname, Michael Ashwin Adhin; Brazilian Foreign Minister Ernesto Araújo, and Guyana’s Minister of Natural Resources, Raphael Trotman, according to Cooperativa.
