Remarks by H.E. Mr. Oscar León González, Ambassador, Chargé d´Affaires a.i. of the Permanent Mission of Cuba to the United Nations within the framework of the First Regular Session of the UNICEF Executive Board. Adoption of the UNICEF Country Programme for Cuba. New York, 12 February 2020
Cuba regrets that the United States´ delegation, once again, attempts to politicize the work of the Executive Board, in this case the process of adoption of the UNICEF Country Programme Document for Cuba.
Once again, attempts are made to modify the working practices and methods of this body and focus is diverted from what should be the essence of the discussions in this room: stand up for children´s rights, help them meet their basic needs and enhance their opportunities to achieve their full potential.
