“Even though it is true that the humanitarian space is linked to conflict situations - that is, we must make the utmost effort in conflict situations- but it is also true that humanitarian space and concerns are also linked to inequities - such as in vaccines access now with COVID-19. It is linked to the impact of sanctions imposed on countries creating crisis-like humanitarian situations, with a lot of human suffering – as we said in the Council – and that should change.”

5. SOUNDBITE (Spanish) Marcelo Ebrard, Secretary of Foreign Affairs, Mexico:
“We are against the blockade. The blockade on Cuba, nowadays in Cuba, Cuban authorities cannot access syringes, or they cannot access medicines. So, the main issue here is, from Mexico’s viewpoint, that the blockade on that country and others where extreme sanctions are imposed, are causing serious impacts on suffering and humanitarian conditions that we should all respect.”

“We have a position of non-intervention all over the world. We respect each government, and we are going to reopen relations with North Korea, as any other country. Thank you very much.”
STORYLINE
Mexico’s Secretary of Foreign Affairs Marcelo Ebrard today (16 Jul) said, “we must make the utmost effort in conflict situations- but it is also true that humanitarian space and concerns are also linked to inequities” as well as to “the impact of sanctions imposed on countries creating crisis-like humanitarian situations, with a lot of human suffering.”

Ebrard said the blockade on Cuba and other countries “where extreme sanctions are imposed, are causing serious impacts on suffering and humanitarian conditions that we should all respect.”

The Mexican diplomat said, “we have a position of non-intervention all over the world. We respect each government,” announcing that Mexico is going to reopen relations with the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK), “as with any other country.”

Ebrard briefed the Security Council this morning on Protection of Civilians in Armed Conflict: Preserving Humanitarian Space.
