Cuba maintains firm commitment to the defense of peace and multilateralism

banderas“In 2020, Cuba will maintain its firm commitment to the defense of peace, multilateralism, strengthening of the UN, and strict adherence to international law and the purposes and principles of the United Nations Charter,” Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodríguez stated on Twitter.

In another tweet, Rodríguez noted that 2019 was a positive year for Cuba’s relations with the European Union (EU) and its member states, noting as an example the Second Joint Cuba-EU Council meeting and the political talks conducted based on the Political Dialogue and Cooperation Agreement (PDA) between the European body and our country.

In defense of multilateralism to support peace on the planet, Cuban President, Miguel Díaz-Canel has expressed that given the open contempt of the United States and other governments for the just claims of nations of the South; the politicization of human rights; flagrant disrespect for the right of peoples to choose their own political, socio-economic and cultural systems; the lack of commitment to multilateralism and international treaties, others may be indifferent, but “Not us, because all these are attacks on our peoples.

“The Non-Aligned Movement, which had weakened at the end of the Cold War, has returned to the spirit of Bandung, the declaration that gave it life, mobilized by the dramatic course of events and the crisis of multilateralism that is now putting the United Nations system at risk.

“Cuba maintains a firm commitment to the strengthening and consolidation of multilateralism and international treaties in the area of disarmament, in particular the goal of achieving a world free of nuclear weapons,” he added.
