In parallel, the Cuban presidency underscored the designation of Cuba as a member of the four bodies of international authority, highlighting its work in defense of the protection and fulfillment of human rights.

“This decision makes Cuba a world reference, its prestige stands out in the world despite the cruel media campaign against it; Cuba is growing, let’s go with everything!”, asserted the Cuban Presidency.

It should be noted that Ecosoc is the UN body in charge of coordinating the economic and social work of the multilateral organization, as well as of the other parts that make it up, with a total of 54 members whose functions extend for three years.
