During her speech at the 77th session of the UN General Assembly, Mia Mottley indicated that the reform of the Security Council should not only focus on its composition, but also on the elimination of the right of veto.

For Mottley, the UN institution does not defend global peace and stability, but rather continues to lead us to war.

Faced with this situation, the Prime Minister of Barbados advocated defending justice, peace and prosperity to resolve conflicts and differences between nations.

Mia Mottley joined the voices that have condemned the unilateral blockade of Cuba by the United States and urged to resolve the ideological differences without imposing sanctions that impact the citizens of the countries.

The Prime Minister of Barbados denounced the current global financial system that has impoverished countries with fewer resources and impedes their development.

Mottley called on leaders to adopt a more inclusive global financial architecture that better serves the majority of UN member states.
