The First Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Cuba and President of the Republic, Miguel Díaz-Canel affirmed Thursday that his country will never be among those indifferent to the genocide committed by Israel against the Palestinian people.

Through his profile in X, the president reiterated the firm support of the largest Antillean island to the lawsuit filed by South Africa in the International Court of Justice (ICJ) against Israel for the crimes and genocidal acts committed against the Palestinian people.

Díaz-Canel attached to his message the Declaration issued this day by the Cuban Ministry of Foreign Affairs in support of the legal proceedings.

#Cuba expresses its firm support for South Africa's lawsuit in the International Court of Justice against Israel for the crimes and genocidal acts committed against the Palestinian people.

In the document, the Foreign Ministry expressed deep concern over the continued escalation of violence by Israel in the illegally occupied Palestinian territories, in flagrant violation of the United Nations Charter and International Law.

It also reiterated its strong condemnation of the killing of civilians, especially women, children and humanitarian workers of the United Nations system, as well as the indiscriminate shelling of the Palestinian civilian population and the destruction of homes, hospitals and civilian infrastructure.

The Declaration also recalled that the Republic of Cuba has been a State Party to the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide since 1953 and, in accordance with the commitments undertaken in that framework, has the obligation to prevent and punish genocide.

Likewise, he stressed that the current context demands the joint action of the peoples and governments of the world to immediately stop the indiscriminate extermination of girls, boys, women and the civilian population in general.
