Cuban Mission to the UN supports new Families’ Code


Cuban Mission to the UN supports new Families’ Code

United Nations, Mar 17 (Prensa Latina) Cuban ambassador to the United Nations, Pedro Luis Pedroso, affirmed that the Families Code project safeguards the values ​​of that base cell of society in the different configurations that exist today.

Through his Twitter account, the island’s permanent representative to the multilateral organization expressed his support for that document, which is the center of debate in the Caribbean nation.

As he stressed, it is a code that is not exclusive, on the contrary, it adds all the families in their various forms.

Recently, at Cuba’s permanent mission to the United Nations, diplomats and workers discussed the Family Code project.

This as part of the consultation process that was carried out on the island on the text, which will later be submitted to a referendum. The consultation at the diplomatic mission in New York was chaired by Pedroso and conducted by Deputy Permanent Deputy Yusnier Romero, Doctor of Legal Sciences.

Romero Puentes explained the importance of this innovative document that gives due importance to families, the main ones in charge of transmitting values ​​and affection from generation to generation.

Likewise, he affirmed that although the current legislation of 1975 promoted ethical and moral values, that text no longer adjusts to the diversity of existing families in Cuba.

For this reason, the diplomat stressed, it is essential to have a Code that resembles the present and future of Cuban society.

During the conversation at the mission, numerous opinions in favor of the project were heard. Likewise, proposals for additions, deletions and doubts were registered on topics such as discrimination and violence in the family, rights of minors, guardianship and protection, formalization of marriage, economic regime of marriage, parent-child relationships, among other issues.
