71 AGNU: Cuba At the General Debate on item "Report of the Human Rights Council."

Mr. Chairman,

The emergence of the Human Rights Council resulted from the need to address double standards, political confrontation and manipulation of the former Human Rights Commission. The negative practices that discredited the Commission, which are strongly rejected by Cuba, should be re-edited within this organ.

71 UNGA: Cuba at the Joint Debate on Agenda items NEPAD and decade to roll back Malaria in developing countries, particularly in Africa.

Mr. President,

First and foremost, we welcome the reports presented by the Secretary-General on both agenda items and sub-items.

Cuba believes that the New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD) is undoubtedly one of the most praiseworthy initiatives ever produced in the African continent over the last decades. The purposes of NEPAD reflect the commitment of the political leaders of the region to the continent´s political, economic and social progress.
