Ambassador Oscar León González, Chargé d´Affaires a.i. of the Permanent Mission of Cuba to the United Nations participated this Tuesday in the session of the Committee on Relations with the Host Country of the United Nations. He stated that there is no legal basis for the restrictions and prohibitions imposed by the United States on the access to the United Nations and the participation of representatives of official delegations of Member States in the meetings of this Organization, including Cuba.
Cuban Second Secretary Indira Guardia González, representative of the Permanent Mission of Cuba to the United Nations, participated in the discussion of the Special Committee on the Charter of the United Nations and on the Strengthening of the Role of the Organization, where she reaffirmed the current significance of the Committee, at a time where some countries seek to impose reinterpretations of the principles and purposes of the Charter of the United Nations, in order to promote interventionist political agendas to the detriment of the integrity and sovereignty of developing countries.
During his intervention at the general debate of the Special Committee on Peacekeeping Operations (PKO), during the 74th session of the United Nations, Manuel J. Pírez Pérez, Minister Counselor of Cuba to the international body, recalled that the organization has the main responsibility for maintaining international peace and security, therefore it has to demand strict compliance of the purposes and principles enshrined in its Charter, especially sovereign equality, political independence, territorial integrity of all States and non-intervention in internal affairs.
