Geneva, Sep 18 (Prensa Latina) Cuba ratified on Friday its support for the people and government of Belarus and its legitimate President Alexander Lukashenko in a session of the UN Human Rights Council convened to attack that country.
‘We energetically reject foreign interference against the sovereignty and self-determination of that sister nation,’ assured Cuban diplomat Lisandra Astiasaran during an urgent debate on the human rights situation in Belarus, where the West is committed to destabilization.
According to Astiasaran, Cuba repudiates the imposition of this type of selective initiatives, directed against sovereign governments and with clear political motivations.
‘We are facing an obvious attempt to use the Human Rights Council to legitimize a coup in a sovereign nation, and to advance the interventionist agenda of the United States and some of its allies,’ she denounced.
In this regard, she warned that on Friday’s debate and the resolution that accompanied it represent new signs of politicization and double standards that prevail in handling the issue of human rights.
Such a stance will only ensure that the Council’s credibility continues, she noted.
