In a message on Twitter, the head of Cuban diplomacy wrote that his country will not rest in the effort to leave future generations a better world free from nuclear danger.

Cuba is honored to be part of the first densely populated area in the world declared free of nuclear weapons, the will of the countries ratified in the Proclamation of Latin America and the Caribbean as a Zone of Peace, the diplomat added.

The Treaty for the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons in Latin America and the Caribbean is known as the Treaty of Tlatelolco after the name of the area in Mexico where it was signed, and its purpose is to prohibit the testing, use, manufacture, acquisition or emplacement of this type of weaponry in this part of the planet.

On Monday, the Member States of the Agency for the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons in Latin America and the Caribbean issued a statement in which they highlight this initiative as a political, legal and institutional reference for the creation of other nuclear-weapon-free zones, through agreements freely agreed between states of the interested region.

Cuba, together with the Non-Aligned Movement, demands the prohibition and total elimination of nuclear weapons and at the same time supports the right to the development and peaceful use of nuclear energy and its applications.

On January 22, 2021, the United Nations Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, of which Cuba was the fifth country to ratify it, came into force.
