Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez also tweeted about the importance of the urgency now to “implement decisions on vital issues such as a fund to financial losses and damages, mitigation, adaptation, and a new financial goal.”
The head of Cuban diplomacy pointed out that the “principle of common but differentiated responsibilities” should prevail as a priority and acknowledged that the recent announcement is an achievement of the developing countries, including small island states, grouped into blocs such as the G-77.
