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.

We thank the Secretary-General for the report presented on the item under discussion.

73 UNGA: Statement by Cuba to the United Nations in the Open Debate of the Security Council on the situation in the Middle East. New York, 18 October 2018.

Mr. President,

We support the statement delivered by the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela on behalf of the Non-Aligned Movement.

Cuba regrets that since the last open debate on this issue there has been no progress in favor of the just cause of the Palestinian people. On the contrary, the situation on the ground continues to deteriorate, with arbitrary decisions such as the withdrawal of a Member State's financial support for the Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Middle East.

73 UNGA:Intervention of the Cuban delegation in the Interactive Dialogue with the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights. New York, 15 October 2018.

Mr. President,

We thank Ms. Bachelet for her oral presentation and congratulate her on her appointment as High Commissioner. We further reiterate our support for the efforts to advance the cause of human rights on the basis of objectivity, non-selectivity and impartiality. She takes on this task facing great challenges, including the growing politicization in addressing the issue of human rights, particularly against countries of the South.
