Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodríguez reaffirmed the need to guarantee the recognition of the right to development for the countries of the Global South on the route to the Summit of the Future in 2024. Speaking at the preparatory meeting for that event, the head of Cuban diplomacy insisted on the right of the South countries to live without having hunger or poverty as a priority.
The lack of progress must not be attributed to a lack of solutions. Actions are there. What it is urgently required is political will to really “leave no one behind” and overcome one of the most complex crises humanity has seen in the modern history. That would be our best contribution to the common future we need to build together.
Despite the ceaseless imposition of a harsh blockade during more than 60 years, that was even strengthened during the pandemic, the important advances of Cuba in health, education, scientific research, culture and sports as well as in the genuine participation of our people in the main political processes that determine the life of the nation, are widely acknowledged.
