Cuba ratifies global compact for safe, orderly and regular migrationHAVANA, Cuba, Dec 12 (ACN) Cuba ratified its commitment to the Global Compact for Secure, Orderly and Regular Migration during the United Nations Intergovernmental Conference that adopted this global consultation mechanism developed in the city of Marrakech, in the Kingdom of Morocco.

The Cuban delegation was headed by the Director General of Multilateral Affairs and International Law of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Rodolfo Reyes, and also included the Cuban Ambassador to that African nation, Elio Rodríguez.
In his address to the conference, Reyes stressed the importance of this Compact to eradicate discriminatory and xenophobic doctrines and policies and rejected the political handling of the migration issue, reiterating a message of support and solidarity to the Bolivarian government of Venezuela.
A press release issued by the Cuban Ministry of Foreign Affairs indicates that the Cuban delegation held a meeting with Abdellah Ben Mellouk, Director of Multilateral Cooperation and Regional Economic Affairs of the Moroccan Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation.
They were also received by the President of the House of Representatives of the Moroccan Parliament, Habib El Maliki. The willingness of both parties to develop bilateral ties in areas of common interest was noted.
The United Nations press service reported that governments around the world, with the exception of the United States, have pledged to increase channels for regular migration, to improve the protection of migrants and to guarantee them basic services.
The negotiations were led by Mexico's ambassador to the multilateral organization, whose document has 23 objectives, which, although not legally binding, are considered by the experts as a very powerful political tool.
