For her part, Ambassador Acevedo emphasized her country's commitment to multilateralism for the benefit of the people of the region. “El Salvador is ready to bet on our national experience, to contribute with our capabilities to the work of this Organization to advance our four pillars in a comprehensive and articulated manner, based on mutual respect and good faith,” said Ambassador Acevedo.
