Díaz-Canel: We promised not to leave anyone behind

Havana, Cuba, September 20.- Six years ago, practically all the leaders of the world, summoned by the United Nations, pledged to “leave no one behind”, in the common purpose of meeting the so-called Development Goals by 2030 Sustainable (ODS), recalled today the President of the Republic of Cuba, Miguel Díaz-Canel.
Speaking this Monday in the Second SDG Moment, during the general debate of the 76th session of the United Nations General Assembly, the president highlighted that Cuba assumed the 17 commitments, seriously and responsibly.

But also aware of the great challenges imposed by the condition of Small Island Developing State, and the impact of the ironclad economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the United States, Díaz-Canel said at the virtual meeting.
The Cuban President denounced the hostile US policy, deliberately and opportunistically exacerbated in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, and pointed out that it constitutes the main brake on the country’s efforts to advance its economic and social development and implementation. of the 2030 Agenda.
The difficulties are enormous, but so is our will to build a sovereign, independent, socialist, democratic, prosperous and sustainable nation, he said, and reiterated Cuba’s commitment to the 2030 Agenda, as can be confirmed in the appreciable coherence between the objectives. and goals of the National Plan for Economic and Social Development until 2030 and the SDGs, said the President.

He ratified that “Con Paso 2030” will continue to advance along the path of sustainable development, strengthening planning and coordination at different levels of government, promoting innovation, scientific research and building alliances between the various actors in society, as essential tools for recovery and progress.
Cuba will also continue to share its experiences with other nations through South-South cooperation, and betting on a renewed and strengthened multilateralism, for solidarity cooperation and the search for global solutions to common problems, said Díaz-Canel.
We revolutionaries are incorrigible optimists and, in the worst case scenario, we seek and find solutions because we believe in the human being and we believe in the future, he added.
Building the world we dream of is a huge task, but possible, if we renounce selfishness and work together to transform the current unjust international order, into a more just, democratic and equitable one, in which finally no one is left behind, he argued.
He warned that an unjust and undemocratic international order is currently the cause of inequalities and exclusion, in a scenario aggravated by the devastating effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to the UN, the SDG Moment serves to annually highlight the Sustainable Development Goals, and this time it takes place as the world experiences a profoundly uneven response to the COVID-19 pandemic, which risks creating a recovery of two levels with significant implications for the advancement of the SDGs, especially in developing countries.
