I am very pleased to welcome you at the Home of Cuba in New York on the occasion of celebrating our National Day and the 60th Anniversary of the Triumph of the Cuban Revolution.

Madam Chair,

Cuba associates itself with the statements delivered by the delegations of Egypt on behalf of the G77 and China, El Salvador on behalf of CELAC and Maldives on behalf of AOSIS.

Three years after the adoption of the 2030 Agenda, inequality and polarization in the world persist and are even worsening. Opulence and the concentration of income and wealth in developed countries are in stark contrast to the underdevelopment and poverty to which two thirds of the world's population are subjected.
