The US is a threat to International Law, says Cuban FM

Havana, Sep 22.- 75 years after having signed the Charter of the United Nations, it is urgent to reaffirm our commitment to the principles of International Law and the strengthening of multilateralism, cooperation with international organizations and the empowerment of this General Assembly, said Bruno Rodríguez Parrilla, Minister of Foreign Relations of Cuba.

During his speech at the 75th session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA 75), the Cuban Foreign Minister referred to the threat posed by the United States to multilateralism and International Law, as well as the danger it poses to the international peace and security.

It promotes conflicts, unconventional and commercial wars and imposes severe unilateral coercive measures and squanders -in its arms race- essential resources for the sustainable development of our peoples, while refusing to cooperate in the confrontation with the multiple crises generated by the devastating Covid- 19, he expressed.

He added that the United States is unaware of important agreements on the environment, disarmament and arms control and abandons international forums such as the World Health Organization, UNESCO or the Human Rights Council.

Rodríguez Parrilla highlighted negative actions of the aforementioned world power, such as opposition to the solution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and the proposal of the so-called Agreement of the Century, which threatens the future of the State of Palestine, on the borders prior to 1967 and with Jerusalem Oriental as its capital.

He mentioned the situation with the people of Puerto Rico who are denied the right to self-determination and independence, and recalled that the United States interferes in the internal affairs of dozens of UN member states, in addition to threatening those it accuses of influencing its corrupt electoral system, using fear and repeated lies as weapons in its dishonest media and disinformation strategy.

Regarding the imperialist interference, he ratified that it violates the Proclamation of Latin America and the Caribbean as a Zone of Peace, by reactivating the Monroe Doctrine.

At the end, the Foreign Minister reiterated that the United States systematically violates the human rights of the Cuban people, by intensifying the economic, commercial and financial blockade and its extraterritorial nature. (ACN) (Photo: Screenshot)
