QCOSTARICA – Although he did not mention the name of Costa Rica, President Luis Guillermo Solis believes that Pope Francis alluded to the Tico model in his speech, on Friday, to the United Nations General Assembly.

“A Pope who speaks of disarmament, talks of about social justice and neutrality of education, is a Pope who is also thinking of the Costa Rican model. Without saying so, the Pope has pictured Costa Rica,” said the President.

Solis, who is in the U.S. to take part in the U.N. summit on Sustainable Development, gave his impressions after listening in person the message by the Pontiff addressing to more than 100 world leaders and diplomats at the U.N. headquarters in New York.

In his speech, the Pope (Jorge Mario Bergoglio) advocated the “total prohibition” of nuclear weapons in the world and that the poor have immediate access to food, water, work and housing, as well as religious freedom.

After the speech by the Pope, President Solis insisted that the concepts developed by the Pontiff are similar to those of Costa Rica based on social justice, disarmament and education.

“Certainly an inspiring message. I found it very close to the principles, the values ​​that have inspired the Costa Rica’s foreign policy and development,” said Solis.

“It has been extraordinary to hear that His Holiness has brought hope, has brought a fresh message and although he looked tired, the power of his voice echoed loudly in the General Assembly,” he said.
