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.

We also thank the Austrian Ambassador Jan Kickert, and his team for their fruitful work at the head of the Committee on Information last year.

73 UNGA: Statement by Cuba at the High-Level Plenary Meeting of the General Assembly to commemorate the International Day of Multilateralism and Diplomacy for Peace. New York, 24 April 2019.

Madam President,

Cuba associates itself with the statement made by the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela on behalf of the Non-Aligned Movement.

The International Day of Multilateralism and Diplomacy for Peace cannot be taken as a mere celebration, but as a reaffirmation of our duty and collective responsibility to preserve peace. As we approach the commemoration of the 74th anniversary of the United Nations Organization, Cuba as a founding member ratifies its commitment to the defense and promotion of multilateralism.

73 UNGA: Statement by Cuba at UN Security Council Open Debate "Threats to international peace and security caused by terrorist acts: combating financing of terrorism". New York, 28 March 2019.

Mr. President,

The delegation of Cuba endorses the statement delivered by the delegation of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela on behalf of the Non-Aligned Movement.

Our country, in defending its independence and sovereignty, has suffered the consequences of appalling terrorist acts, organized, financed and carried out from abroad, resulting in the loss of 3,478 lives and 2,099 disabled persons. Most of these acts have been organized, financed or allowed by the United States Government and committed by people under its control and protection.

73 UNGA: Statement by Cuba at the thematic meeting on the working methods of the General Assembly held within the framework of the Ad Hoc Working Group on the Revitalization of the General Assembly New York, 27 March, 2019.

Co-Chairs,

Cuba endorses the statement by the delegation of Algeria on behalf of the Non-Aligned Movement.

We have noted the efforts of some Main Committee Bureaus, to share among them useful experiences for their working methods.

Although we consider that this exchange has improved in relation to previous years, this has not been the case among the bureaus and the membership of the full committees, which is, in our view, the first step to follow in order to achieve an effective improvement of the working methods.

73 UNGA: Statement by Cuba at the General Assembly Meeting to Commemorate the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. New York, March 25, 2019

Madam President,

My delegation thanks you for the convening of this commemorative meeting marking the celebration of the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.

My delegation recognizes and reaffirms the results of the World Conference against Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and other Related Intolerance, held in Durban, and considers it a transcendental milestone in the struggle for equal rights among all human beings.

73 UNGA: Statement by Cuba at the commemorative meeting of the General Assembly on the occasion of the International Day of Remembrance of the Victims of Slavery and the Transatlantic Slave Trade. New York, 25 March 2019.

Madam Chair,

Allow me to express our gratitude for convening this plenary meeting to pay tribute to the victims of one of the most gloomy and ignominious pages in human history – Slavery and the Transatlantic Slave Trade.

Slave trade and the terrible legacy of slavery are the root causes of profound social and economic inequality, hatred, fanaticism, racism and prejudice that continue to affect people of African descent.
