Statement by Cuba at the open debate of the Security Council “Implementation of note s/2017/507: working methods”. New York, 28 june 2022

Cuba

We reiterate our support for a comprehensive and thorough reform of the Security Council, including its working methods, to make it a transparent, democratic and representative organ. It is imperative that the Security Council adopts its rules of procedure, so that an end can be put to the "temporariness" that its rules have had since the establishment of this organ. This is indispensable for transparency and the necessary accountability to all United Nations Member States, on behalf of which the Council must act, in conformity with Article 24 of the Charter.
