“Cuba SÍ, bloqueo NO” was the call made by "ÖKG", the Austrian-Cuban Friendship Association which gathered hundreds of participants to the public activity carried out in the Viennese district of Wieden, where ÖKG´s  headquarters are located. The activity aimed at showing neighbors and visitors the solidarity work they do with Cuba and at calling the attention of new members. In a festive atmosphere enlivened by Austrian musicians and Cuban residents, the participants spoke out against the blockade and received updated information about Cuba.

Statement Delivered by The Minister Of CITMA at the high level session of the CTBT Science and Diplomacy Symposium

Dear M. Lassina Zerbo,

Delegates and guests,


Firstly, I would like to express my gratitude to the organizers of the Symposium for the possibility to share some Cuban experiences and perspectives on scientific diplomacy with you.

In our opinion this is a concept which is closely linked to the relations of peace among countries as its main feature is to use science and apply it to promote, improve and strengthen the ties among societies not to destroy the world and the human race.
