Cuban FM at UN to reaffirm commitment to multilateralism, solidarity

Havana, Sep 20 (Prensa Latina) Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez on Monday said that his country will reaffirm its commitment to multilateralism and solidarity at the 76th session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA).

On his Twitter account, the foreign minister stated that the Caribbean nation will advocate for the commitment to the United Nations Charter and the international law, as well as ratify that the challenges imposed by Covid-19 could be only faced through international cooperation.

The high-level segment of the UNGA opens debates this Monday, focused on the pandemic and climate change, as Maldivian diplomat Abdulla Shahid, who chairs the forum, announced.

The aim is to boost actions to recover from the health emergency at a time when much hope is needed, as Shahid expressed in his opening address to the 76th session of UNGA on Tuesday, September 14.

The opening meeting of the high-level segment will host the Sustainable Development Goals Moment to discuss the progress on those 17 goals, just when the world experiences an uneven response to the health crisis and this has an impact on the achievement of the 2030 Agenda.

More than 100 heads of State and Government informed that they will participate in person in the UNGA general debate starting on Tuesday, September 21.

Several presidents expect to speak virtually.
