United Nations, November 12 (RHC) – The Permanent Cuban Mission at the United Nations submitted four draft resolutions aimed at strengthening human rights and peace on the planet.
The documents, which were presented at the Third Commission of the UN General Assembly dealing with social, humanitarian and cultural issues, will be analyzed by that body later this month. In case the Commission adopts the draft resolutions, then they will be submitted to the plenary session of all 139 UN member states for their consideration.
Co-sponsors of the Cuban documents are Bolivia, Ecuador, Nicaragua and Venezuela.
The draft resolutions include a project on the use of mercenaries as a violation of human rights and hindrance of the rights of the peoples to self-determination. This document states that the use, recruitment, financing, protection and training of mercenaries are of great concern to all states as these actions violate the principles of the UN Charter.
Cuba also submitted other draft resolutions on the right to food, the promotion of democratic and egalitarian international order, and the promotion of peace as a crucial element for the full enjoyment of human rights by all persons.
