"The promotion of a democratic and equitable international order"
Statement by the Permanent Representative of Cuba, Ambassador Anayansi Rodriguez Camejo, in presenting the draft resolution L.7 "The promotion of a democratic and equitable international order" at the 33rd regular session of the Human Rights Council. Geneva, September 29, 2016.
I have the honor to present, on behalf of the sponsors, the draft resolution L.7 entitled "Promotion of a democratic and equitable international order".
The draft resolution stresses the impossibility of achieving a democratic and equitable international order in conditions of deregulation of trade, markets and services.
In addition, the independent expert is invited to continue his studies regarding the impact of economic and financial policies of international organizations and other institutions on a democratic and equitable international order.
Attempts to oust by force legitimate governments, with their corresponding impact on the national and international democratic order, are also condemned.
A just, democratic and equitable international order is an imperative condition for efforts within countries both to development and the promotion and protection of human rights bear the expected results.
No country can fully exercise the right to peace, self-determination and a healthy environment for its people, if the current international order, which is in particular the biggest obstacle to the exercise of the right to development of the peoples of the South, is not changed. That is the great importance of this issue.
Cuba hopes that this initiative will be adopted again with the support of the majority of Council members.
