Cuban Ministry of Foreign Affairs Calls on Members of UN Security Council to Fulfill their Mandate
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Cuba is concerned with the statement made on August 31st by Barack Obama, President of the United States, in which he announced his decision to launch military action against the Syrian Arab Republic.
According to the Ministry, that more evidence needs to be presented, and what the President suggests totally disrespects the opinions of many countries.
Cuba’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs says that these actions are in violation of the international law and the UN Charter, which will inevitably provoke more death and destruction.
They fear that it may lead to an intensification of the existing conflict in the Arab nation.
The Ministry is now calling on members of the UN Security Council to fulfill their mandate, to prevent any rupture of the peace and to stop the military intervention, which they believe threatens international security.
The 20 world leaders met in Saint Petersburg, Russia, on September 5th to 6th, hoping to discuss the decision made by the President of the United States.
Today September 9th, many await the United States Congress’ decision, as sessions on the initiation of another war or the preservation of world peace continues.
Cuba also calls on the United States leaders and the world, to prevent the attacks against other countries and that attempts are made to supplant diplomacy by war.
The Ministry states, that Cuba urges peace and religious leaders, youth and students, workers, artists and academics, social movements, progressive forces and all those who reject war, to mobilize in opposition to the decision made by the President of the United States to attack the Arab nation.
