The following statement was issued today by the Spokesperson for UN Secretary-General António Guterres:
The Secretary-General welcomes the decision announced on 18 July of political parties in El Salvador to establish a negotiating framework to reach medium- and long-term agreements for the benefit of the country. He congratulates the members of civil society, constituted in a United Nations-facilitated Group in Support of Political Dialogue, who have helped bring into being the commitment of political parties.
The Secretary-General hopes that the political parties will now join their efforts in translating their commitment into concrete agreements that will benefit all Salvadoriens.
