Mr. Chairman,

My delegation endorses the statement of El Salvador on behalf of the Latin American and Caribbean States.

Cuba ratifies its support for the agreements of the World Summit for Children, including the need to allocate more resources to solve the problems that most affect children and adolescents.

While progress has been achieved in upholding the rights of boys and girls, regrettably these have been unequally distributed due to wealth divide and polarization between the North and the South.
