Geneva, Feb 2 (Prensa Latina) Cuba is participating in the 37th session of the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) of the Human Rights Council, in which it makes constructive observations and recommendations to countries under review, the Permanent Mission of Cuba noted on Tuesday.
In a statement, the diplomatic body detailed that by participating in the analysis, its interventions take into account the particular situation, challenges and results in the field of human rights of the 14 States enrolled in the current cycle.

Micronesia, Lebanon, Mauritania, St. Kitts and Nevis, Australia, St. Lucia, Nepal, Oman, Austria, Myanmar, Rwanda, Georgia and Nauru are undergoing the UPR, a mechanism of the Council that Cuba supports for its multilateral nature and as an antidote to selectivity and political manipulation in the field of human rights.

The Permanent Mission to the UN Office in Geneva and other international organizations headquartered in Switzerland pointed out that in the review of Nauru, the island is part of the troika in charge of supporting the UPR Working Group, along with Somalia and France.

In the text, Cuba’s Permanent Mission stressed the importance of addressing human rights on the basis of equality and without distinction.
