Havana, Jun 26 (Prensa Latina) Cuba’s President Miguel Diaz-Canel highlighted on Friday Cuba’s adherence to the principles of the United Nations Charter, International Law and multilateralism.
Diaz-Canel assured so in a letter sent to the UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres to commemorate 75 years since the UN Charter was signed.
’75 years after the member States of this Organization signed the UN Charter, strict adherence to its goals and principles, to International Law and to the preservation of multilateralism are more relevant than ever,’ the president wrote.
In his letter, Diaz-Canel refers to the multiple crises that the world faces as an aftermath of the Covid-19 pandemic, ‘whose devastating effects, visible in all areas of society, are expected to be lasting and add to the pending global challenges.’
The international context is increasingly complex. Conflicts and the arms race grow rapid, he pointed out.
The leader referred to the tightening of unconventional wars for domination ends, acts of aggression, unilateral coercive measures, manipulation and politicization of human rights and disrespect for the self-determination of peoples.
Multilateralism is attacked, he added, international deals are unknown and the role of organizations such as the UN and the World Health Organization is disqualified.
Cuba’s head of State argued that the current unfair international economic order deepens inequality and underdevelopment, and increases poverty, hunger, marginalization and lack of access to essential services for life, such as healthcare services.
