Cuba in favor of eliminating causes of arms trafficking

Cuba in favor of eliminating causes of arms trafficking

Vienna, May 11 (Prensa Latina) In order to eradicate illegal arms trafficking, we must fight its socioeconomic causes, Marlen Redondo, member of Cuba's Permanent Mission at the UN, in Austria, said on Tuesday.

The third secretary of the Cuban delegation at the United Nations in this capital called for international cooperation and assistance to the States that request it, according to their needs.

During a speech at the Working Group on Firearms, Redondo highlighted that her country complies with the commitments as a member State of the UN Convention against Transnational Organized Crime and its annexed Firearms Protocol, which it joined in February, 2007.

Cuba does not manufacture or exports weapons, the diplomat said by declaring that there are severe and effective control mechanisms in her country, and the people is well aware of the dangers of their illegal trafficking.

There are regulations and procedures regarding the management and security of small and light weapons, the diplomat said, who highlighted the existence of sanctions in case of theft and loss.

Finally, she extended her country’s concern about the Arms Trade Treaty that ‘grants privileges to exporting States, to the detriment of other nations’ legitimate interests of defense and security.’
