Venezuela proposes in Egypt to reactivate the Amazon Cooperation Treaty

In statements offered to international media, the president of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro, considered it necessary to reactivate the Amazon Cooperation Treaty Organization (ACTO), from the Colombian stand at the Sharm El Sheikh International Convention Center, where The 27th Conference of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP27) is held:

I believe that it is necessary to reactivate the Amazon Treaty Organization that brings together all the countries of South America. All the countries that have access to the Amazon are grouped there: Colombia, Brazil, Ecuador, Peru, Venezuela, Guyana, among other nations”, said the Venezuelan head of state.

Regarding the announcement, the national president indicated that the common flag should be to save the Amazon jungle, because “We are on time, great damage has occurred in recent decades” as part of the “effects linked to the predatory capitalist system”.

In this sense, he emphasized that, from South America, together with the world, it corresponds to start a path of protection and salvation of the Amazon.

It is the most important thing. It is one of the concrete and specific responsibilities that we have to fulfill. We are going to see that now, an action plan,” pointed out President Maduro.
