El caso de Palestina, con sus frecuentes víctimas y agresiones a su soberanía, constituye un punto permanente en la agenda del Consejo de Derechos Humanos de la onu, aunque no sea noticia de los principales medios de comunicación a nivel mundial todos los días.
Por ello Cuba, que ha estado vinculada a la Organización de Naciones Unidas (onu) desde su fundación en 1945, no deja de aportar para que el organismo avance hacia una verdadera asociación capaz de articular políticas y armonizar esfuerzos en la búsqueda de objetivos comunes de los países que la integran.
Así quedó evidenciado durante las sesiones del 38 periodo ordinario de sesiones del Consejo de Derechos Humanos, cuando el embajador del país caribeño, Pedro Luis Pedroso, se refirió a una de las causas más dramáticas del globo: la lucha de Palestina por su integridad territorial.
Para que esta llegue a su esperado cauce, dijo Pedroso, «debe basarse en la creación de dos estados, y permitir a los palestinos el derecho a la libre determinación y a disponer de un Estado independiente y soberano en las fronteras anteriores a 1967, con Jerusalén Oriental como su capital».

Cuba was one of the 13 countries that opposed the division of the Palestinian territory in the recently created United Nations Organization, back in 1947.

“I should like to explain very briefly why the Cuban delegation feels bound to vote against the plan for the partition of Palestine recommended by the Ad Hoc Committee,” stated Dr. Ernesto Dihigo, in November that year, at the second session of the UN General Assembly. (Following January 1, 1959, Dr. Dihigo continued to practice revolutionary diplomacy, and joined the Cuban Academy of Language).

The dignified position of our country in that forum saw the denunciation of the United Kingdom’s violation of international law through the Balfour Declaration, and the plan to grant a “national home” for the Jewish people in Palestinian territory.

“The Balfour Declaration, in our opinion, is not legally valid because in it the British Government was offering something which did not belong to it and which it had no right to give,” Dihigo stressed.

The Partition Plan for Palestine was later adopted by the UN General Assembly as Resolution 181, giving rise to the creation of the State of Israel.

The Revolutionary Government of the Republic of Cuba vehemently condemns the criminal attack on the defenseless Palestinian population in the Gaza Strip, by the Israeli Army which has killed at least 52 people and left over 2,400 injured.

This act constitutes another serious and flagrant violation of the UN Charter and international humanitarian law, and a new outrage against the Palestinian people.

Cuba reiterates its rejection of the unilateral steps taken by the United States to establish its diplomatic representation in the city of Jerusalem, in utter contempt of international law and the United Nations resolutions, and further aggravating tensions in the region.

The Revolutionary Government reiterates once again its unwavering support for a comprehensive, just, and lasting solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, on the basis of the creation of two states, and the Palestinian people’s right to free self-determination and a sovereign state according to the pre-1967 borders, with East Jerusalem as its capital.
