Cuba reaffirms commitment to disarmament at UN

United Nations, Oct 28 (Prensa Latina) Cuba supported the central role of the United Nations as leader of international negotiations on disarmament and opposed any attempts that may threaten an end to multilateral agreements.

Cuban representative Cristian Padilla ratified at the UN that Cuba fully trusts the management of that organization to promote multilateralism as a basic principle and the only effective approach to said purpose.

“We support the work of the disarmament machinery of this Organization,” the official remarked.

In his speech, which took place during the thematic debate entitled Machinery for Disarmament, at the 1st UN Committee, the Cuban diplomat drew attention to the need to preserve the existing agreements on the matter and on the regulation of armaments. He called to deepen international cooperation to ensure its strict observance and strengthen existing negotiations.

We oppose any attempts to erode the disarmament architecture or to weaken and end to multilateral negotiations on the matter, he emphasized.

Despite the need to renew the commitment by the Member States to the Conference on Disarmament, it is necessary to fulfill its negotiating mandate, ensure its vitality and preserve its regulations, procedures and practices, in particular the method of consensus as a fundamental basis for his performance, he said.

Padilla underlined that the effectiveness of the tool designed to contribute decisively to achieving general and complete disarmament will depend on the political will of all its members.
