RIGA - Saeima deputy speaker Zanda Kalnina-Lukasevica (New Unity) during a meeting with Mexican Ambassador to Latvia Alejandro Alday Gonzalez today, stressed the need for changes in the UN Security Council in order to improve its working principles.

"An aggressor state should not gain anything and should not go unpunished, because this would encourage Russia and other countries to aggression in the future," said Kalnina-Lukasevica, noting that changes are needed in the UN Security Council to strengthen its functionality and that Latvia and Mexico can work closely together on this issue. Currently, Russia is one of the five veto-wielding members of the UN Security Council.

The Saeima Press Service informred that during the discussion on bilateral relations between Latvia and Mexico, as well as on cooperation at the EU level, the parties also discussed the issues of improving the legal basis for agreements to strengthen mutual trade.

Kalnina-Lukasevica and the ambassador agreed on the possibility of developing Latvian-Mexican cooperation in education and student exchanges. They also discussed ways to strengthen parliamentary dialogue, including through the use of digital technologies.
