73 UNGA: Statement by Cuba at the High-Level Plenary Meeting of the General Assembly to commemorate the International Day of Multilateralism and Diplomacy for Peace. New York, 24 April 2019.

Madam President,

Cuba associates itself with the statement made by the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela on behalf of the Non-Aligned Movement.

The International Day of Multilateralism and Diplomacy for Peace cannot be taken as a mere celebration, but as a reaffirmation of our duty and collective responsibility to preserve peace. As we approach the commemoration of the 74th anniversary of the United Nations Organization, Cuba as a founding member ratifies its commitment to the defense and promotion of multilateralism.

73 UNGA: Statement by Cuba at UN Security Council Open Debate "Threats to international peace and security caused by terrorist acts: combating financing of terrorism". New York, 28 March 2019.

Mr. President,

The delegation of Cuba endorses the statement delivered by the delegation of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela on behalf of the Non-Aligned Movement.

Our country, in defending its independence and sovereignty, has suffered the consequences of appalling terrorist acts, organized, financed and carried out from abroad, resulting in the loss of 3,478 lives and 2,099 disabled persons. Most of these acts have been organized, financed or allowed by the United States Government and committed by people under its control and protection.

73 UNGA: Statement by Cuba at the thematic meeting on the working methods of the General Assembly held within the framework of the Ad Hoc Working Group on the Revitalization of the General Assembly New York, 27 March, 2019.

Co-Chairs,

Cuba endorses the statement by the delegation of Algeria on behalf of the Non-Aligned Movement.

We have noted the efforts of some Main Committee Bureaus, to share among them useful experiences for their working methods.

Although we consider that this exchange has improved in relation to previous years, this has not been the case among the bureaus and the membership of the full committees, which is, in our view, the first step to follow in order to achieve an effective improvement of the working methods.

Madam Chair,

Allow me to express our gratitude for convening this plenary meeting to pay tribute to the victims of one of the most gloomy and ignominious pages in human history – Slavery and the Transatlantic Slave Trade.

Slave trade and the terrible legacy of slavery are the root causes of profound social and economic inequality, hatred, fanaticism, racism and prejudice that continue to affect people of African descent.

We appreciate the convening of this thematic debate on the Role and Authority of the General Assembly. We endorse the statement by the delegation of Algeria on behalf of the Non-Aligned Movement.

When we speak of the General Assembly, we refer to all the States it comprises, under equal conditions and without distinction, for this reason, it is the main deliberative, policymaking and representative organ of the UN.

73 UNGA: Statement by Teresa Amarelle Boué, Secretary General of FMC and Member of the Council of the State of the Republic of Cuba to the 63rd Session of the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW). New York, 14 March 2019.

Madame Chair,

On behalf of the Cuban government and people, I convey greetings to you and to the distinguished personalities attending this 63rd Session of the Commission on the Status of Women.

The priority issue is of significant importance in order to seek viable alternatives that contribute to transforming the reality in which millions of women are still living worldwide. It is not enough for rights to be recognized in international instruments or laws to be passed, if there is no genuine political will within each of the States for their implementation.
