Havana, Nov 14 (Prensa Latina) Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodríguez today demanded an end to unilateral coercive measures that hinder climate action by developing countries.
In a message posted on the social network Twitter, Rodriguez said that the application of these punitive policies limits national efforts to make progress in climate action.
He added that Cuba demands an end to these measures incompatible with international laws.
The statements of the head of the Caribbean island’s diplomacy come as negotiations of the 27th Conference of the United Nations Convention on Climate Change (COP27) resume in Egypt.
This Saturday from the Egyptian city of Sharm El Sheikh, where the summit is being held, the Cuban Minister of Science, Technology and Environment, Elba Rosa Perez, called for a greater global effort to reduce emissions of polluting gases.
The high-ranking official pointed out that this effort must be carried out under the principle of common but differentiated responsibilities, and the fulfillment of the financing promises of the rich nations.
