Cuban President called for unity among nations of the South, upon assuming the pro-tempore presidency of the G77+China

United Nations, Jan 13 (RHC) On Thursday, Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel called for unity among nations of the South, upon assuming the pro-tempore presidency of the G77+China.

In a video message at the official ceremony, the Cuban leader urged to take pressing actions to overcome obstacles to the people´s real progress. Unity is an imperative today and the greatest of all emergencies, Díaz-Canel stressed.

Our nations continue to be at the rearguard of global development, while they bear the consequences of multiple crises and inequalities derived from the current unjust international order, he said.

Given this global scenario, Díaz-Canel heaped praise on the G77+China´s role as the economic conscience of the underdeveloped countries, which, he said, promotes unity among nations, regions, identities, cultures, and different development levels.

He stressed that the strength of two-thirds of the world has allowed reaching significant progress in certain objectives and ideals, but there are still many substantial pending issues.

Díaz-Canel claimed that ahead of the setback caused by the Covid-19 pandemic in several countries, it is imperative to reach consensus on issues affecting the bloc and its member nations.

In his message, the Cuban leader reiterated the commitment to continue working tirelessly in defense of the interests of the G77+China´s member nations.

The Group of 77 plus China brings together 134 of the 193 members of the United Nations (UN), that is, 80 percent of the world's population. The main areas in which it operates are trade, industry, food, agriculture, energy, and finance.

Although they may have governments of different political persuasions, they share a series of values, such as respect for international law, the promotion of democracy, and the protection of human rights. (Prensa Latina)
