Mexico Backs Guatemala, Not Venezuela

The Mexican Government vowed Monday to "back and further" Guatemala's nomination for a seat at the United Nations (UN) Security Council, contended currently against Venezuela."For strategic reasons and due to the partnership with Central American countries, Mexico will not only support, but foster Guatemala's nomination," said in a press conference Rubén Aguilar, the spokesman of Mexican President Vicente Fox. A new temporary member at the UN Security Council will be elected next October. Both Guatemala and Venezuela expect to fill the Latin American post that will be fell vacant by Argentina.
