Cuba elected to chair Group of 77 and China in 2023

HAVANA, Sept 24 (NNN-Xinhua) — Cuba was elected Friday to chair the Group of 77 (G77) and China in 2023 at a meeting on the sidelines of the 77th session of the United Nations General Assembly.

The foreign ministers of the G77 approved Cuba’s candidacy by acclamation, a decision welcomed by Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez.

“Endorsement of Cuba’s election is more than a recognition of our country, it is an enormous responsibility, since the G77 and China is the broadest and most diverse cooperation group in the multilateral sphere,” Rodriguez tweeted.

The top Cuban diplomat highlighted the “impressive historical tradition” of the group, describing the designation as “a very great honor.” — NNN-XINHUA
