Nueva York, 13 de julio de 2018 - Co-facilitadores, estamos agradecidos por la orientación y el trabajo de ustedes y su personal durante los últimos dos años en la producción del Pacto Mundial para la migración segura, ordenada y regular. Apreciamos sus esfuerzos para promover la voz y el espacio para la participación de la sociedad civil y las redes de migrantes en un proceso formal y diligente.

También reconocemos a todos los Estados miembros participantes que han trabajado para crear este acuerdo, particularmente en un entorno político xenófobo, a menudo hostil a la comprensión de las realidades de los migrantes y los refugiados. Expresamos nuestra firme esperanza de que, cuando se aplique adecuadamente y con esfuerzos concertados para abordar las brechas restantes, el Pacto proporcione a los Estados miembros un marco sólido para gobernar la migración de una manera que respete los derechos humanos y el estado de derecho.
