75 UNGA: Statement by Ambassador Pedro L. Pedroso Cuesta, Permanent Representative of Cuba to the United Nations, Open debate of the Security Council on the Situation in the Middle East, Including the Palestinian Question. New York, 26 October 2020.

Mr. President,

We support the statement delivered by Azerbaijan on behalf of the Non-Aligned Movement.

A global epidemic has drastically changed everyday life. The effects of COVID-19 demand from us a dynamic, concerted, efficient response, based on complementarity, cooperation and solidarity. The long-desired right of humankind to live in peace and security, with justice and freedom, which is the basis of coexistence among nations, is constantly threatened.

74 UNGA: Statement by Ambassador Ana Silvia Rodríguez Abascal, Deputy Permanent Representative and Chargé d’Affaires a.i. of Cuba to the United Nations, upon presentation of the Annual Report of the Security Council. New York, 31 August 2020.

Mr. President,

Our delegation is grateful to you for convening this meeting to discuss the Security Council Annual Report to the General Assembly of 2019, contained in document A/73/2.

Once again, the annual report of such a relevant organ in the maintenance of international peace and security is merely a descriptive account of meetings, activities and decisions of the Security Council, when the vast majority of United Nations Member States have questioned whether this is just a formal and uncritical exercise.

We endorse the statement delivered by the delegation of Azerbaijan on behalf of the Non-Aligned Movement.

73 UNGA:Statement by Ambassador Ana Silvia Rodriguez Abascal, Deputy Permanent Representative and Chargé d'affaires a.i. of Cuba to the United Nations at the Security Council Open Debate on "Protection of civilians in armed conflict" New York, 23 May 2019

Mr. President,

We endorse the statement delivered by the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela on behalf of the Non-Aligned Movement.

We share the concern reflected in the most recent report of the Secretary-General on the protection of civilians in armed conflict (S/2019/373), which states that civilians continue to account for the vast majority of victims in conflict situations, targets of indiscriminate attacks and other violations.

73 UNGA: Statement by Cuba to the United Nations. Security Council Quarterly Open Debate on the Situation in the Middle East, Including The Palestinian Question. New York, 29 April 2019.

Mr. Chairman,

We endorse the statement by the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela on behalf of the Non-Aligned Movement.

The Cuban delegation regrets that since the last open debate on this issue there has been no progress in favor of the just cause of the Palestinian people. On the contrary, a dangerous aggravation of the deterioration of the situation on the ground has been perceived in the last quarter.

73 UNGA: Statement by Ambassador Ana Silvia Rodriguez Abascal, Deputy Permanent Representative and Chargé D'affaires a.i. of Cuba to the UN, at a Security Council Meeting on the situation in Venezuela. New York, 26 February 2019.

Mr. President,

The Government of the United States, with the reckless complicity of several countries and actors, staged a dangerous provocation intended to violate the sovereignty of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, through the use of pressure and force, putting the lives of thousands of people at risk.

The attempt to enter Venezuela by force, under the pretext of delivering and distributing an alleged humanitarian aid, is a serious violation of international law and of the purposes and principles of the Charter of the United Nations, which must be denounced.

73 UNGA: Statement by Cuba at the intergovernmental negotiations on Security Council Reform. New York, February 25, 2019.

Co-Chairs,

We appreciate the convening of this meeting and we will focus our statement on the elements included in the letter from the Co-Chairs, dated February 18, 2019.

Before tackling the elements proposed in your letter, we reiterate that the Security Council reform process should be based on a comprehensive and broad approach, addressing all substantive issues related to the five key issues, namely: the question of membership, the number of members, regional representation, working methods and the decision-making process, including the question of the veto.

73 UNGA: Reply by Ambassador Anayansi Rodríguez Camejo, Permanent Representative of Cuba to the United Nations, to the statements made by the United States delegation at the Security Council meeting. New York, 26 January 2019.

Mr. President,

We have again asked for the floor to reply to the slanderous statements of United States Secretary of State Michael Pompeo and Mr. Elliot Abrams, which I reiterate that we utterly reject. Both deliberately lie and ignore that the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela is a free, independent and sovereign nation that makes its own decisions.
