Statement by H.E Mrs. Janine Coye-Felson, Charge d’Affaires a.i. Permanent Mission of Belize to the United Nations

Belize takes this opportunity to confirm its unwavering support for draft resolution A/73/L.3.

We do so, fortified in the universal acceptance, that international law affords no exception for violations of the rule of law.

By consistently and overwhelmingly rejecting the unilateral, economic, commercial and financial embargo against Cuba and its people as a violation of the Charter and international law, the General Assembly itself affirms the no exception rule.
Madame President,
