UNGA must continue condemning this flagrant unjust economic blockade imposed by the United States on Cuba and the inclusion of Cuba in the States Sponsoring Terrorism (SST) list, Savarin stated.
He also made reference to those sanctions imposed on Venezuela, declaring his government stands up in solidarity with the Venezuelan people.
On behalf of the Dominican people and government, which holds the pro tempore presidency of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM), Mr. Savarin also condemned the crisis in Haiti.
The Caribbean country ‘requires crucial international intervention to face a crisis rooted on multiple fronts’, he added.
Haiti has been hit by several earthquakes, hurricanes, pandemics and socio-political instability, if there is any cause that deserves attention by the international community is Haiti’, he stated.
The Dominican leader also pleaded for peace in Africa and indicated that ‘the international community should heed the call of African leaders and let them act in sovereignty’.
On the other hand, he also referred to global challenges, especially the climate crisis that mainly affects small island developing states.
He urged for implementing the 2030 Agenda goals and biodiversity treaties as a way to solve urgent environmental issues.
