72 UNGA: Statement by H.E. Mrs. Anayansi Rodríguez Camejo, Ambassador, Permanent Representative of Cuba to the United Nations under item 15: "Culture of Peace". New York, 8 December 2017.

Mr. Chairman,

The Agenda Item 15 of the General Assembly reminds us that peace is not only a goal to be fulfilled but a supreme objective to be preserved.

There can be no peace without full respect for the sovereignty of States; and there can be no peace without respect for the self-determination of peoples and the territorial integrity of States.

Violence must be brought to an end, life must be respected, dialogue and cooperation must be considered, and emphasis must be placed on education and the transmission of values for peace.

Mr. Chairman, H. E. Mr. Jorge Arreaza, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela,

Cuba is grateful for the convening and holding of this meeting on such an important and sensitive issue for a group as culturally diverse as the Non-Aligned Movement.

Dear Comrades,

On behalf of the people of Cuba, their government and the relatives, we express our gratitude for your attendance at this commemorative ceremony dedicated to paying homage to the life and work of the Commander-in-Chief of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro Ruz.

Mr. Chairman,

We are deeply grateful for the convening of this meeting in such difficult times for the countries affected by the destructive hurricanes Irma and Maria.

The recent passage of hurricanes Irma and Maria through the Caribbean region demonstrated once again the vulnerabilities of Small Island Developing States in the face of natural events of this magnitude.
