UN Considers Cuba an Indispensable Ally for Multilateralism

Havana, Apr 4 (Prensa Latina) Cuba is an indispensable and strategic ally to strengthen the multilateral system, asserted today in this capital the president of the General Assembly of the United Nations, Maria Fernanda Espinosa.

We recognize the role of Cuba in such complex moments, which generate a great challenge for world peace and the need for a fairer and more equitable multipolar order, said Espinosa after being received at the Foreign Ministry by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Caribbean island, Bruno Rodríguez.

Our organization thanks Cuba for its vital and dynamic role in the work of the General Assembly and throughout the system in general, said the visitor.

He highlighted the commitment of the Antillean nation to the multilateral system and to the United Nations organization.

‘My presence here is a recognition of the fundamental role that Cuba has played in strengthening the multilateral system with its always constructive contribution in the decision-making processes,’ Espinosa emphasized.

Cuba’s leadership role in the Movement of Non-Aligned Countries and in promoting the diplomatic agenda for peace and development is well known, he recalled.

Also, he highlighted, is one of the stellar countries in the fulfillment of the 2030 agenda and sustainable development.

Your visit will help you to confirm Cuba’s commitment to multilateralism, said the head of Cuba’s diplomacy.

‘We will continue to participate in a constructive, flexible and active manner as we have done in the work of the general assembly under his leadership in an international situation that we feel is increasingly difficult and dangerous,’ said the foreign minister.

We will support the strengthening of the United Nations and also its reform, in particular, the much-needed changes in the Security Council, Rodriguez said.

We will continue to work together for a fairer, more democratic international order, international cooperation and dialogue, which is the only way to solve the problems of humanity, said Cuba’s Foreign Minister.
