Delegate: Ms. Montserrat Pérez Cisneros (20 years)
66. Ms. Pérez Cisneros (Mexico), speaking as a youth delegate and recalling General Assembly resolution 69/158 on protecting children from bullying, said that Mexico had decided to make bullying a priority issue and had initiated several programmes to address it. It had also recently passed the General Acton the Rights of Children and Adolescents. At the regional level, the countries of Latin America and the Caribbean had adopted the Montevideo Consensus on Population and Development, which set targets for protecting and promoting the rights of children, adolescents and young people, as well as an operational guide for its implementation and follow-up.
67. Government action was required to protect the best interests of vulnerable children and to empower children and adolescents to report abuses and achieve respect for their rights. Mexico would like to see the General Assembly address the rights of children from a comprehensive perspective that linked human rights and development. It would be participating actively in the creation of the new global partnership to end violence against children.
