The Cuban Institute of Friendship with the Peoples (ICAP) and the
Cuban-Arab Friendship Association (AACA) reaffirm their solidarity with
the Palestinian people and their ongoing support.
For 75 years, the Palestinian people have faced, in an unequal struggle, the growing hostility of the Israeli state, which has sought to displace them from their
own territory, disregarding United Nations resolutions and violating basic
The battle fought by this heroic people calls upon us to redouble our
efforts in condemning the crimes that Israel continues to commit against
a nation defending its legitimate rights.
The Cuban Institute of Friendship with the Peoples and the Cuban-Arab
Friendship Association embrace the steadfast position of our Ministry of
Foreign Affairs (MINREX) and the entire Cuban people in seeking a
comprehensive, just, and lasting solution to the Israeli-Palestinian
conflict based on the creation of two states, enabling the Palestinian
people to exercise their right to self-determination and to have an
independent and sovereign state within the pre-1967 borders, with East
Jerusalem as its capital.
We believe that it is the duty of the United Nations Security Council to
take appropriate measures to halt the suffering and disaster in Palestine.
It is the duty of all nations to condemn the critical situation facing this
people. We extend our solidarity and unconditional support to our Palestinian
brothers and sisters, whose cause we defend as our own.
