Cuban Ambassador presents credentials to Unesco

Paris, Apr 30 (Prensa Latina) Cuba's permanent representative to Unesco, Maria del Carmen Herrera, today presented her credentials to the organization's director general, Audrey Azoulay, at a meeting in which they discussed the state of bilateral relations.

In a brief ceremony in this capital, the Cuban ambassador and Azoulay expressed the will of the parties to strengthen ties in the areas of competence of the multilateral organization: education, science, culture and information.

Cuba and Unesco will celebrate 77 years of close ties in August, in a challenging international scenario, marked by conflicts and the consequences of climate change.

The Cuban delegation said that in the context of the presentation of credentials, Herrera and Azoulay agreed to highlight the role of Unesco and the validity and importance of its mandate and founding principles to strengthen the commitment to peace and multilateralism.

The diplomat and the director general also exchanged views on the value of inclusive education, culture, science and innovation as drivers of sustainable development.

The Cuban ambassador took the opportunity to emphasize the island’s gratitude to Unesco for its support in the face of the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the United States for more than six decades, a policy that represents the main obstacle to the development of the Caribbean country.
