76 UNGA: Statement by the Cuban delegation at the Third Committee General Debate. New York, 1 October 2021

Mr. Chair,

Mr. President,

The year that is ending has been marked by the unprecedented impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, which adds new challenges and complicates others that already existed for the international community.

Madam President,
