Through Twitter, the official referred to the need for more ambitious commitments from the States, especially from the most developed nations, and insisted on the urgency of putting an end to the irrational consumption patterns of capitalism.
Marrero added that developed countries must assume their historical responsibility in the degradation of the environment and warned that the harmful effects of climate change have an impact on everyone, but with greater emphasis on the South nations.
In his opinion, the event, being held in the Egyptian city of Sharm el Sheikh, is a space for dialogue on these issues, although he reiterated the importance of meeting the goal of 100 billion dollars a year to support efforts by the South, initially planned for 2020.
For his part, Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez recalled that, three decades after the adoption of the UN Convention on Climate Change, the call of the Revolution leader Fidel Castro regarding the danger to humankind and planet is still valid.
In Twitter, the Foreign Minister evoked the leader’s phrase: ‘Cease selfishness, cease hegemonism, cease insensitivity, irresponsibility and deceit’, included in the speech delivered in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on June 12, 1992.
He also expressed that developing countries are demanding at COP27 the acceleration and realization of negotiations on a new financial goal, while developed nations are delaying the process, and demanded an end to the postponement of commitments and the avoidance of responsibilities.
