The Cuban Foreign Minister will address a high level segment of the UN General Assembly

Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodríguez will address the high-level segment of the 77th session of the United Nations (UN) General Assembly today.

On this occasion, Cuba will ratify its commitment to peace and multilateralism, in an effort to achieve a more democratic, fair and just international order, based on full respect for the UN Charter and international law, the foreign minister said recently on Twitter.

Rodríguez is leading the delegation from the largest island in the Antilles to this first post-Covid-19 meeting, attended by 150 ministers of state, government and foreign affairs from around the world.

Since his arrival in New York, USA, last Saturday, the highest representative of Cuban diplomacy has developed an intense schedule of bilateral contacts with colleagues from a dozen nations.

The day before, the Cuban official spoke with his Sahrawi counterpart, Mohamed Salem Ould Salek, about the historic links of cooperation and solidarity between the two peoples and governments.

In addition, at a meeting with Portuguese Foreign Minister Joao Cravinho, the parties agreed on the need to develop and expand political dialogue.

The minister also met with his Syrian counterpart, Faisal Mekdad, on strengthening ties between the two countries and mutual support in the face of unilateral blockades and sanctions, and thanked Nicaraguan Foreign Minister Denis Moncada for constant expressions of solidarity with Cuba.

Earlier, Rodríguez spoke to Adaljiza Magno, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation of Timor-Leste and former member of the Constituent Assembly, about the remarkable results of the island’s medical cooperation.
