UN agency approves resolution presented by Cuba

Geneva, Jul 7 (Prensa Latina) The United Nations Human Rights Council on Thursday approved by a majority a resolution on Human Rights and International Solidarity, submitted by Cuba at the 50th session of this Geneva-based organization.

Of 47 delegations, 31 voted in favor, 15 against and one abstained.

Previously, the Cuban representatives had denounced the political manipulation of the freedom of religion and beliefs to which some governments resort to condemn and sanction third countries.

“We do not acknowledge that a country has the right to proclaim itself the police or guarantor of religious freedom in the world or issue certifications or unilateral lists,” the statement from the Cuban officials said.
