Cuban permanent representative to the UN, Juan Antonio Quintanilla, detailed in a special session of the Human Rights Council, that it took 20 years, thousands of deaths and billions of dollars in expenses for the United States and its allies to show an alleged lack of concern in that regard.

Quintanilla added that history teaches lessons about the impossibility of preventing terrorism with bombs and the known smart weapons, as well as demonstrating that the United States has no right to rule the destiny of Afghanistan or any sovereign country.

According to a report by the UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan, in 2020 there were 5,785 civilians injured, and 3,035 lost their lives, while in two decades of occupation over 100,000 Afghans were dead/or wounded, as well as millions of citizens were displaced.

The diplomat pointed out that where the United States intervenes to allegedly promote democracy, human rights or fight terrorism, chaos, destruction, death and poverty prevail, as well as creating instability and conflicts in neighboring countries.

To the special session, the Cuban representative reiterated that cooperation, respectful and constructive dialogue among all States, based on the principles of the United Nations Charter and International Law, constitute the effective path for the promotion and protection of human rights for all.
