71 AGNU: Cuba At the General Debate on item "Report of the Human Rights Council."

Mr. Chairman,

The emergence of the Human Rights Council resulted from the need to address double standards, political confrontation and manipulation of the former Human Rights Commission. The negative practices that discredited the Commission, which are strongly rejected by Cuba, should be re-edited within this organ.
