Cuba condemns suspension of Russia from UN Human Rights Council

Cuba condemns suspension of Russia from UN Human Rights Council

Havana, Apr 7 (Prensa Latina) Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodríguez on Thursday strongly condemned the suspension of Russia from the UN Human Rights Council and assured such a decision favors no a peaceful, negotiated and lasting solution to the Ukraine conflict.

“Today it is Russia, tomorrow it could be any of our southern nations that do not bow to the interests of domination and champion their own independence,” the Cuban Foreign Minister live-tweeted, who also questioned whether a similar measure will be taken against the United States for its historic hostile policy against Cuba.

“Will suspension from the UN Human Rights Council be applied to the State that has imposed the lengthy, flagrant, hostile, massive and systematic blockade on Cuba for over 60 years, and considered as a violation of the human rights of an entire people?” he posted.

Earlier this week, Washington announced that it was seeking Moscow’s suspension, citing alleged war crimes committed by Russian troops in Ukraine.

Russia was elected to the UN Human Rights Council in 2020 with 158 votes, and the resolution to suspended it from this council was supported by 93 member countries.

Havana voted against such a decision, and Cuba´s permanent representative to the United Nations Pedro Luis Pedroso condemned to the UN General Assembly (UNGA) the politicization, double standards and selectivity.

“It was no coincidence that the most enthusiastic promoters of Russia´s suspension, when the construction of the new UN Human Rights Council was being negotiated, were developed nations with a demonstrated tendency to accuse countries of the South that do not conform to their supposed models of democracy,” he said.
