Cuba strengthens bilateral agenda at the UN and leadership in G77 and China

The president of Cuba, Miguel Díaz-Canel, continued his bilateral agenda this Wednesday after meeting in the United Nations headquarters in New York with representatives of Vietnam and Saint Lucia, and signing the Treaty for the Conservation and Sustainable Use of Marine Biodiversity.

In a message published on the social network X, the president described the meeting with the Vietnamese Prime Minister, Pham Minh Chinh, as very fraternal.

Later, the head of state exchanged with Philip J. Pierre, Prime Minister of Saint Lucia, as part of his program at the high-level week of the 78th UN General Assembly.

In another message, the president announced the signing of the treaty for the Conservation and sustainable use of marine biodiversity beyond jurisdictional waters.

He emphasized that the representation of Cuba, which chairs the G77, is aware of the prevailing need for the instrument, one of the most important negotiated during this century, to come into force as soon as possible.

For the Caribbean country, he said, it was an honor to have assumed the coordination of the 134 member countries of the G77 during the last and decisive session of the Conference on Marine Biodiversity.
