Cuba in Austria

Speech by Ambassador Juan Antonio Fernández Palacios to the IAEA Board of Governors

Mr President,

The adoption of the Nuclear Test-Ban Treaty on 7 July 2017 and its next opening for signature on 20 September constitute a historic milestone. It is a result of a long and delayed process of multilateral negotiations since UN General Assembly adopted the first resolution on 24 January 1946 calling for the elimination of nuclear weapons.

The new Treaty is a deserved tribute to all victims of the use or test of nuclear weapons. It is an acknowledgment of those who have fought against oblivion as the hibakushas.

Statement by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Cuba

On 17 February this year, the United States Embassy in Havana and the Department of State informed the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the occurrence of some alleged incidents affecting some officials of that diplomatic mission and their families.
