Madam Chair,

My delegation endorses the statement made by the Dominican Republic on behalf of CELAC.

Cuba stands firm in its conviction that a key requirement towards the full realization of gender equality and empowerment of all women and girls is the achievement of a new equitable and just international order, ensuring the eradication of poverty and hunger, the end of armed conflicts, the value of human beings above capital and the preservation of the environment.

Mr. Chairman,

First of all, our delegation associates itself with the statement made by the Dominican Republic of behalf of CELAC, and in our national capacity we would like to highlight the following elements.

The current international context demands for crime prevention to remain a task of first priority. Every country, regardless their socio-economic characteristics, is vulnerable to the different manifestations of crime, including the emerging forms.

Mr. Chairman,

The Cuban delegation commends you for your election, as well as the other members of the Bureau.

We fully endorse the statement delivered by Venezuela on behalf of the Non-Aligned Movement and by the Dominican Republic on behalf of CELAC.

Mr. Chairman,

The possibility of a nuclear war, within the current context of dangerous and growing tensions, is becoming ever closer and unpredictable. We insist that nuclear disarmament is an international priority and deserves attention at the highest level.
