Cuba decries UN's Israeli attitude
UN: Cuba denounced Wednesday the Security Council's silence
regarding Israeli actions, particularly the construction of settlements
in Palestinian territories and the blockade of Gaza.
The denunciation was made by Cuban permanent representative to UN
Pedro Nunez Mosquera during a debate on the Middle East situation.
Nunez Mosquera said that the Council's silence on the issue of
Israeli settlements in the past two years has been used by Israel to
continue demolishing Palestinian houses and constructing settlements.
Cuba demands the immediate cessation of these actions, of the
construction of the wall built by Israel and of the eviction of
Palestinian families in East Jerusalem, he said.
The Cuban diplomat also repudiated all illegal actions of incitement,
provocation and aggression by extremist settlers against holy sites and
the Palestinian population.
He said that direct talks between Israel and the Palestinians held
less than a month due to the Tel Aviv's decision to continue
constructing settlements and break the short moratorium in that regard.
