United Nations, Novmber 5 (RHC)-- Cuba has urged the United Nations General Assembly to adopt urgent measures to end racial discrimination and xenophobia in the world.

“To begin with,” Cuban Representative Rodolfo Reyes told the Assembly, “we must eliminate the root causes of racism, discrimination and xenophobia, while at the same time establishing a new international order based on equality, solidarity and social justice.”

The Prensa Latina News Agency reports that the Cuban Representative spoke at the Third Commission, recalling that those very serious ills persist twelve years after the adoption in Durban, South Africa, of the Declaration and Action Plan of the World Conference against Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and other expressions of Intolerance.

Those ills continue, the Cuban representative said, recalling that civilizations and millenary religions are still demonized by Western power centers and their media.

Rodolfo Reyes further said that “at all levels we proclaim and support the Decade of the Afro-desendants”.
