73 UNGA:Statement by Ambassador Ana Silvia Rodriguez Abascal, Deputy Permanent Representative and Chargé d'affaires a.i. of Cuba to the United Nations at the Security Council Open Debate on "Protection of civilians in armed conflict" New York, 23 May 2019

Mr. President,

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

We share the concern reflected in the most recent report of the Secretary-General on the protection of civilians in armed conflict (S/2019/373), which states that civilians continue to account for the vast majority of victims in conflict situations, targets of indiscriminate attacks and other violations.

Mr. Chairman,

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

The Cuban delegation 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, a dangerous aggravation of the deterioration of the situation on the ground has been perceived in the last quarter.

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.
