Mr. Chairman, H. E. Mr. Jorge Arreaza, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela,

Cuba is grateful for the convening and holding of this meeting on such an important and sensitive issue for a group as culturally diverse as the Non-Aligned Movement.

Cultural diversity as the common heritage of humanity must be valued and preserved for the benefit of all. Promoting respect for culture, history, different religions and the distinctiveness of each nation is our duty and our right.

Madam President,

We welcome the convening of this meeting and reiterate Cuba's sincere condolences on the recent natural disasters that have hardly hit several regions of the planet.

The increasingly devastating and frequent impact of natural disasters confirms that climate change is a threat to the survival of humankind and the sustainable development of peoples.

71 UNGA: Cuba at General Debate of the Eight Working Session of the Open-Ended Working Group on Aging.

Mr. Chairman,

My delegation attaches great importance to the discussion of the issue of population aging in the United Nations, and to the role played by this Working Group since its inception.

Cuba will be one of the two countries in Latin America and the Caribbean with the largest aging population in the near future; for this reason, our country has given priority to elderly care and carries out a multidisciplinary and intersectoral work to guarantee the quality of life of this sector of the population.
