Costa Rica is an advocate for peace.

A University for Peace student delegation visited the Presidenta Laura Chinchilla,  at Casa Presidencial in San José, as part of the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN).

farmasnuclearesPresident Chinchilla signed a message of support for the “Treaty on the Abolition of Nuclear Weapons” in a special ceremony related to the paper crane project, which foresees sending 1000 paper cranes to every head of state worldwide as a symbol to encourage them to sign a treaty for the prohibition of nuclear arms.

“We need to applaud and recognize the important campaigns you [UPEACE students] have been carrying along many years. I would like to emphasize that the request that you make with these beautiful paper cranes does not fall on non-fertile ground here in Costa Rica and in the hands of the Presidents”, said Chinchilla.

Costa Rica, said the presidenta, stands precisely “for advocacy over and over again, through a set of facts, the calls for peace”, especially by abolishing their own army in 1948.

Dr. Victor Valle, Rector of the the University for Peace, pointed out the paradox that the five permanent members of the Security Council of the United Nations are the countries with the most nuclear weapons.

The ceremony was also attended by representatives of the Costa Rican government, legilsators and civil society, and diplomatic corps.
Chinchilla said Costa Rica, which got rid of its army in 1948, is an advocate for peace.
