After he regarded such a hostile policy as a violation of international rights affecting the interests of all countries, Berti called the international community to keep on supporting Havana in its struggle against the US blockade.
Berti stated that the right to development constitutes a universal and inalienable right, that is corresponded to both the individuals and the peoples: ‘it is a collective right that we all must enjoy’, he assured.
Nevertheless, he pointed out that ‘the deep economic crisis that now affects all the nations, its enormous social implications and the unequal exchange in the trade, constitute, among others, some of the main obstacles that on a global scale are an outrage against the achievement of the right to development’.
The Cuban delegate said these obstacles are bringing more and more sufferings of the thousands of million persons who still live in conditions of poverty and underdevelopment, in all the places in the world. (Prensa Latina)
