The resolution, presented by Chile, Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Costa Rica, Mexico, Peru and the United States, was approved by 21 votes in favor and seeks that the government and all parties "participate actively and in good faith in the National Dialogue, as a mechanism to generate peaceful and sustainable solutions to the situation in Nicaragua".
