Havana, Cuba.- Cuba, a victim of terrorism, continues to fight against this phenomenon and is party to 18 international conventions to combat terrorism, as was reaffirmed at the United Nations.

During a recent meeting of the UN General Assembly on the issue, Cuba reiterated its support to adopt a comprehensive convention on international terrorism that overcomes the existing legal gaps regarding the definition of this phenomenon.

The Caribbean nation also supported the call for an international conference under UN auspices to provide an organized response to the scourge of terrorism in all its forms and expressions.

Cuba also joined one of the initiatives that gathered the most international support last year, on signing the ‘Code of Conduct towards Achieving a World Free of Terrorism.’

At the same time, Havana considers the harmful practice of financing, supporting and promoting subversive acts of ‘regime change’ a violation of the principles of the UN Charter and international law.

The Cuban delegation stressed at that meeting its strong condemnation of the unilateral acts and mechanisms of certain governments, such as the United States, which repeals the right to certify conduct and draws up politically motivated lists.

In 60 years of Revolution, Cuba has suffered terrorist attacks, armed and financed by the United States. About 3,000 Cuban citizens have been killed in such attacks, a similar figure has suffered injuries, with many victims physically disabled for life.
