Cuba's Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez Parrilla has said that “irresponsible behavior” conducted by the United States is the biggest threat to international peace and security.
The minister’s comments were in a pre-recorded speech addressing a high-level meeting to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the United Nations.
"While refusing to cooperate to confront the multiple crises generated by the devastating Covid-19 pandemic, the United States ignores important agreements in the areas of environmental protection, disarmament and arms control," Parrilla said.
“And it withdraws from international forums such as the World Health Organization, UNESCO or the Human Rights Council. It would seem that it is at war with the entire planet, its vital resources, and its inhabitants."
Parrilla also accused the US of attacking Cuba's international medical cooperation and said the country was "inhibiting the rights of other nations health, well-being."
He said the US was the "epicenter of the Covid-19 pandemic that has already taken a toll on the lives of some 200,000 US citizens as a result of its irresponsibility and electoral opportunities present."
