Statement of the Cuban delegation in the general discussion of item 19 c) “Crime prevention and criminal justice”, Management Segment of the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC). New York, 22 July 2021.

Mr. President:

Cuba remains fully committed to the United Nations efforts in crime prevention and criminal justice, and we reaffirm the relevance of the CCPCJ, which is evident when assessing the report of its 30th session.

It is also clear that this complex topic requires further international cooperation. However, contrary to that spirit, several countries continue to be under unilateral coercive measures that have a heavy toll on sustainable development, including crime prevention and criminal justice efforts.

73 UNGA: Speech by the Deputy Permanent Representative of Cuba to the United Nations, Ambassador Ana Silvia Rodríguez Abascal. ECOSOC Operational Activities for development segment. New York, 23 May 2019.

Madam Vice-president,

We thank the Secretary-General for the presentation of the report on the implementation of the General Assembly resolutions 71/243 and 72/279 and their annexes, and that of the UN Development Coordination Office. We hope to be able to consider the proposals presented in the Report on a case-by-case basis and to support an informed decision in that regard at the General Assembly.

Madam Vice-president,

73 UNGA: Statement by Teresa Amarelle Boué, Secretary General of FMC and Member of the Council of the State of the Republic of Cuba to the 63rd Session of the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW). New York, 14 March 2019.

Madame Chair,

On behalf of the Cuban government and people, I convey greetings to you and to the distinguished personalities attending this 63rd Session of the Commission on the Status of Women.

The priority issue is of significant importance in order to seek viable alternatives that contribute to transforming the reality in which millions of women are still living worldwide. It is not enough for rights to be recognized in international instruments or laws to be passed, if there is no genuine political will within each of the States for their implementation.
