Мексика в поисках реформы Совета Безопасности ООН

The article provides system analysis of the modern Mexico's views on the most difficult and controversial
reform of the UN Security Council, which was formed during several prior administrations. These views
have been preserved under the current President Enrique Peña Nieto. The author considers historical aspect of
Mexico's membership in the UN that takes the second place in Latin America for the economic development
(with Brazil taking the lead) and is a founding member of this organization, and a higher speaker for contemporary
international law. The author names a number of international legal instruments initiated and signed with
the active participation of the Latin American countries on such issues as disarmament and denuclearization,
the ban on the use of force and weapons in space activities, moratorium on the nuclear tests, arms trafficking,
upholding human rights and freedoms. The article discusses particular views of Mexico on observance of the
principle of non-interference in the internal affairs of States and enhancement of the transparency of the activities
of the Security Council. A number of cases supports this principled position: the Kosovo crisis, the adoption
of the American version of the UN Security Council resolution on Iraq, search for a solution to the conflict in
Syria.
