Cuba Stresses New HRC Goal

Cuba highlighted Monday that the fact of being founding member of the UN Human Rights Council (HRC) proves at the end reason defeats force and principles impose power and money.

In his speech at the top-level opening segment of the Seventh HRC Session, Cuban Foreign Minister Felipe Perez Roque said that after 20 long years of "fighting devils" we end old coercive styles of the group.

The island"s official noted that United States, with several pretexts to legitimate its aggression against Cuba in the former Commission turned "into failed State in this matter, responsible for the most dangerous crimes and violations of human rights." "That battle has concluded in this way: with the categorical victory of little David," great in his dignity, against giant Goliat, powerful man with his nuclear weapons and preventive wars," he noted.
