75 UNGA: Statement by the delegation of the Republic of Cuba. Thematic debate on "Outer space". First Committee. New York, October 2020

Mr. Chairman,

The threat of an arms race in outer space, the continuous development and improvement of space weapons and the presence of war material in space undermine the realization of the peaceful aspirations of peoples, particularly the smallest countries, to benefit from the potential of space technologies for the implementation of the 2030 Agenda.

UNGA 75: Statement by the delegation of the Republic of Cuba. Thematic debate on “Other disarmament measures and international security”. First Committee. New York, October 2020

Mr. Chairman,

We share the goal of general and complete disarmament, in particular nuclear disarmament, as the highest priority in this area. We call for the implementation of other disarmament and international security measures.

 A renewed commitment is needed to make progress in multilaterally agreed, legally binding initiatives, to prohibit the militarization of outer space, cyberspace and lethal autonomous weapons; as well as to regulate military combat drones.

Mr. Chairman,

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

We gather today, in an unprecedented international scenario, where the COVID-19 pandemic is a challenge posed to all, generating a crisis of several and devastating effects not only for health but also on economy, trade and our societies in general, while nuclear stockpile is being modernized and enlarged, under the pretext of concepts or military doctrines of defense and security, which continue to threaten humanity.
