Interview offered by President Miguel Mario Díaz-Canel Bermúdez to Ignacio Ramonet.

Cuba has never stood idly by and we have developed a capacity for resistance. I would even say, after the experiences during COVID-19, that it is a creative resistance, because the country has not only been capable of resisting the onslaught of the blockade, but the country under these conditions has advanced, has contributed, has grown as a nation and, furthermore, has developed. 

Cuba considers urgent and necessary Palestine´s full United Nations membership.

Cuba reiterated that admission of Palestine as a UN Member State is an urgent need and an essential step to advance towards a comprehensive, just and lasting solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. “The historical injustice that has prevented Palestinian brothers from participating in the UN with equal rights must be reversed, without further delay,” said Ambassador Ernesto Soberón Guzmán.

MINREX Statement: The United States Continues to Protect Terrorists

This decision conveys a dangerous message of impunity to those who intend to engage in violent acts against diplomatic missions in the city of Washington. These terrorist acts are the direct result of the policy and the aggressive discourse of the US government against Cuba; the permanent incitement to violence and the hatred of US politicians and anti-Cuban extremist groups.

In United Nations, Cuba reiterates its steadfast solidarity with the Palestinian cause.

Cuba described it as shameful that the United States government has prevented the realization of the legitimate aspirations of the Palestinian people. Ambassador Soberón Guzmán further explained that Palestine's admission to the UN is one of the first and essential steps that are urgently required to achieve a solution to the conflict, and called for reversing the historical injustice.

Despite the blockade, the informatization of Cuban society continues to be a priority.

Ambassador Ernesto Soberón Guzmán addressed the general debate of the 46th meeting of the United Nations Information Committee. He refered that the informatization of Cuban society continues to be a priority and added that the Information and Communications Technologies sector is part of the strategic objectives within the Economic and Social Development Plan until 2030.
