Cuba expresses its commitment to peace at The Hague

The Hague, Netherlands, Feb 21 (Prensa Latina) Cuban Deputy Foreign Minister Anayansi Rodriguez expressed Cuba’s genuine interest and commitment to peace, when speaking in The Hague, the Netherlands, on Wednesday.

At the headquarters of the International Court of Justice, the deputy foreign minister noted Cuba’s historic and unconditional solidarity with the peoples subjected to colonialism and foreign domination, and condemned the massacre committed against the Palestinian people by Israel, the occupying power.

She said that this is happening with the complicity of countries like the United States, which are ‘responsible before International Law for the genocide, war crimes, crimes against humanity and the apartheid regime that determines where people can live, work and circulate depending on their ethnic and religious origins.’

In this regard, she underlined that the nations present at the hearing bear the high moral, historic and legal responsibility to make a clear, transparent and forceful denunciation of the Palestinian people’s ignominious situation.

As representative of the Cuban delegation, the deputy foreign minister noted the essential legal elements to determine the international responsibility of Israel and the other international stockholders, in addition to the legal implications and consequences of these illegal acts.

As explained above and, especially, taking into account the untenable situation of the Palestinian people, the Honorable International Court of Justice should pronounce itself in the clearest, most forceful and energetic legal terms, in defense of International Law,’ the diplomat added.

Therefore, the Cuban delegation requested the speedy issuance of a Consultative Opinion opposing so many years of impunity and ‘clearly establishing the international consequences and responsibilities of all those who in one way or another contribute to the extermination of the Palestinian people.’
