The tendency to increase global military expenditure while hunger and poverty exponentially increase in the world is regrettable.

Last year, global military expenditure amounted to 1.7 billion dollars, while 3,460 million human beings survive in poverty, 821 million people suffer from chronic hunger, 758 million, are illiterate and 844 million, lack basic drinking water services.

73 UNGA: Statement by the delegation of Cuba at Thematic Debate on nuclear weapons First Committee. New York, October 19, 2018

Mr. Chairman,

We fully endorse the statement by Indonesia on behalf of the Non-Aligned Movement.

Cuba shares the deep concern over the existence of nuclear weapons. The number of nuclear warheads deployed in the world is more than enough to destroy civilization several times and most of life on planet earth.

The scant progress towards nuclear disarmament and the lack of commitment with multilateralism and international treaties on disarmament, by some nuclear-weapon States are a matter of serious concern.

Mr. Chairman,

We commend you and the other members of the Bureau on your elections. We further wish you success in the work of this Committee.

We support the statement delivered by Indonesia on behalf of the Non-Aligned Movement, and El Salvador on behalf of CELAC.

Seventy-three years after the criminal bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, about 14,400 nuclear weapons still exist in the world, including 3,750 that are deployed and 2,000 in operational status. Cuba reiterates its deep concern at the mere existence of nuclear weapons.
