Cuba rejects Israel's annexationist plans for Palestine at UN
United Nations, Jul 28 (Prensa Latina) Cuba's alternate permanent representative to the UN, Ana Silvia Rodriguez, rejected on Tuesday the position of the Israel's government, which publicly declares its plans to annex large areas of the occupied Palestine.
All this, in the midst of a difficult situation exacerbated by the Covid-19 pandemic, noted the ambassador, who chaired a virtual conference on the Jerusalem issue.
Cuba has fully supported a comprehensive, fair and everlasting solution to that conflict, which allows the Palestinian people to exercise their right to self-determination, she recalled.
Rodriguez also emphasized the need to establish an independent and sovereign Palestinian State, based on the pre-1967 borders, with East Jerusalem as its capital, and where refugees are guaranteed their right of return.
This virtual meeting, indicated the Cuban ambassador, is a way to express support and solidarity with the Palestinian people and their inalienable right to self-determination and independence, with a special focus on the issue of Jerusalem.
In this regard, Rodriguez thanked the UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres for his unwavering support to the Committee for the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People.
