President Díaz-Canel reaffirms Cuba’s support for Palestine

Havana, Sep 14 (Prensa Latina) Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel on Thursday reaffirmed his country’s unconditional support for the right of Palestine to be a free and sovereign State, the Cuban leader said during official talks with his Palestinian counterpart Mahmoud Abbas who is visiting Cuba to attend the G77+China Summit.

The Summit, with a high presence of representatives from several nations and organizations, focuses on today´s development challenges including the role of science, technology and innovation.

Made up of 134 member States, the G77+China accounts for 80% of the world’s population and more than two thirds of the UN membership.

Israeli troops occupied Palestinian East Jerusalem back in the 1967 war, and have since refused to withdraw despite UN Security Council (UNSC) resolutions.

In 1980 the Israeli authorities declared the entire city as the eternal and indivisible capital of the country, a stance rejected by the international community, which considers the eastern area as part of the future Palestinian state.
