72 UNGA: Statement by the Minister of Foreign Trade and Investment of Cuba, Rodrigo Malmierca Díaz. General Debate of the High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development. New York, July 17, 2018.

Madam Chair,

Cuba associates itself with the statements delivered by the delegations of Egypt on behalf of the G77 and China, El Salvador on behalf of CELAC and Maldives on behalf of AOSIS.

Three years after the adoption of the 2030 Agenda, inequality and polarization in the world persist and are even worsening. Opulence and the concentration of income and wealth in developed countries are in stark contrast to the underdevelopment and poverty to which two thirds of the world's population are subjected.

The issue of water is at the heart of human survival. As it is wisely asserted: "Water is Life". Access to this resource is a human right whose full enjoyment by all is an objective yet to be reached.
