Cuba reaffirms its position in favor of multilateralism and peace at the UN (+ VIDEO)

The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Cuba, Bruno Rodríguez, reaffirmed here today the position of his country in favor of multilateralism and peace, as pillars of a new, more democratic, fair and equitable order.

Speaking at the general debate of the 77th session of the UN General Assembly, in New York, United States, the Cuban foreign minister denounced the intensification of the blockade that this northern power has maintained for six decades against the Caribbean nation.

Before 150 heads of state, government and foreign ministers participating in the high-level segment of the 77th session of the United Nations (UN) General Assembly, the highest representative of Cuban diplomacy emphasized the genocidal nature of that policy.

Cuba, a small island developing state, has paid a high price for defending its legitimate right to exist as a sovereign and independent nation, said the official, who described the unilateral siege as ruthless, strengthened to unprecedented levels in recent years.

Likewise, he defined as enormous, cruel and immoral the human damage that this act of economic warfare in peacetime generates for all Cuban families.

In this sense, he reaffirmed Cuba’s will to creatively resist the US blockade and aggression, in the effort to build its own development project, and demanded the immediate end of Washington’s hostile policy.

Next November, the UN General Assembly will analyze, for the thirtieth time, the issue of the siege maintained by the United States, which has intensified since 2017 with more than 240 measures, with the purpose of destabilizing the revolutionary process on the island.

Such a policy, which has a brutal impact on the population’s standard of living, is considered the main obstacle to Cuba’s development, which is why it is almost unanimously rejected by the international community.
