El Salvador must address inequality to consolidate peace process, UN chief says

Wednesday, January 18, 2012

The UN Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon, called on El Salvador to address its socio-economic inequalities and advance rule of law reform.

The country's citizens need to be able to experience positive and tangible results from the peace process that was initiated 20 years ago at the end of the civil war, the UN chief said.

“As we acknowledge the success of the peace process in El Salvador, we cannot forget that peace consolidation is a long process that requires addressing the root causes of the conflict,” Ban said in his message marking the twentieth anniversary of the historic peace agreements.
