The UN Special Committee on Decolonization reiterated Monday, June 18, Puerto Rico’s inalienable right to self-determination and independence, in accordance with General Assembly Resolution 1514, on the granting of independence to colonial countries and peoples.
In a draft resolution adopted by consensus, the Special Committee once again urged the United States to assume the responsibility of promoting a process that allows Puerto Rico to take sovereign decisions to address its urgent economic and social needs.
Promoted by Cuba, Nicaragua, Venezuela, Ecuador, Russia and Syria, the text was added to the 36 resolutions and decisions on Puerto Rico adopted by the Committee since 1972.
