Cuba celebrates 77 years of commitment to the United Nations

New York, 24 October 2022. Cuba, founder of the United Nations, celebrates today the 77th anniversary of this international organization, with the sustained commitment to continue defending the UN Charter.

For seven decades, the island has been focused on the defense of peace and international security, friendly relations among nations, the promotion of social progress and the improvement of living standards and human rights; a responsibility it acquired when it signed the Charter along with representatives of 50 founding countries of the organization, on 26 June 1945.

Cuba tirelessly continues reiterating the necessary defense of multilateralism and respect for the sovereignty of States, and raises its voice to reject domination and hegemony, unilateral coercive measures, genocidal blockades and the attempt to impose a unique culture and model on the world.

Because of the principles we defend, on 2 and 3 November we will once again present to the General Assembly, for the thirtieth time, the resolution entitled "Necessity of ending the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the United States of America against Cuba", to denounce the growing and suffocating effects of the US blockade against the island.

Undoubtedly, the prestige and recognition we have gained will once again demonstrate the world's support for the Cuban nation and the rejection of a policy described as obsolete, failed and genocidal.

Defending ourselves as a country is to defend and respect the Charter of the United Nations.
