These guidelines address the problem of unilateral coercive measures perpetrated by the West, from various legal and economic perspectives.

Rejection of coercive measures

In this regard, it was established in the joint statement that unilateral coercive measures that violate international law entail international responsibility. It is also recommended not to recognize or implement these measures, especially extraterritorial measures that violate international law.

The declaration underlined the responsibility of the infringing States to compensate for the economic losses caused by these measures. In addition, a road map is being promoted to reduce the dependence of international trade on certain currencies related to coercive measures.

In addition, efforts are being made to strengthen regional financial institutions to improve bilateral and multilateral relations equitably. These principles seek to protect the legal and economic rights of States affected by unilateral coercive measures and to promote an international order based on mutual respect and cooperation.

During the reception of the Nicaraguan delegation, Lavrov stressed: Latin America and the Caribbean region are going to become a major center of power of the new multipolar world order.
