 Cuba's Ambassador to UN rejects unilateral lists

United Nations, May 26 (Prensa Latina) Cuba’s permanent representative to the United Nations, Pedro Luis Pedroso, on Wednesday rejected the unilateral acts and mechanisms of governments such as the United States, which arrogate to themselves the right to make politically motivated lists.

Such lists are contrary to international law and undermine the authority of the UN General Assembly in the fight against terrorism and multilateral cooperative efforts in that regard, the ambassador tweeted.

Precisely on Thursday, the Cuban diplomat participated in a virtual dialogue with human rights partners and members of civil society on the construction of a better paradigm to prevent and fight terrorism.

Meanwhile, the head of the Cuban mission in the United States, Lianys Torres, highlighted her country’s willingness to fight against terrorism and denied its refusal to cooperate in the fight against this scourge.

No honest and sensible person in the world would say that a country like Cuba, which has been a victim of terrorism, is not in favor of cooperating with any nation, including the United States, to fight against that scourge, she tweeted on Tuesday.

For Cuba’s President Miguel Diaz-Canel, Washington is acting with cynicism against his country, which it links to terrorism while applying coercive measures that harm the people.

On his Twitter account, the president described as cynical the decision of the White House administration, which kept Cuba on the list of countries that do not cooperate in the fight against the scourge, in which it has been included since May 2020.

In addition, the head of State affirmed that the US government aims at smothering the Cuban people by maintaining the 243 blockade measures imposed by former President Donald Trump.
