Speaking in the 2021 UN General Assembly's High-Level Plenary Meeting to Commemorate and Promote the International Day for the Total Elimination of Nuclear Weapons, the Foreign Minister of Cuba, Bruno Rodríguez Parrilla, said: 'We call for the universalisation of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, which clearly states not only the inhumane, immoral and ethically indefensible character of these weapons, but also their illegal nature. Cuba takes pride in having been the fifth State to ratify it; of being part of the first nuclear-weapon-free zone in a densely populated area of the planet and belonging to the first region of the world to proclaim itself as a zone of peace.'2
- Cuba should continue to encourage other states to adhere to the TPNW.
- Cuba should ensure that all the TPNW obligations are implemented domestically, through legal, administrative, and other necessary measures.
