Havana, March 21 (RHC)-- First Deputy Foreign Minister Gerardo Peñalver will address the opening session of the United Nations Conference on Disarmament.

The meeting will take place on March 22 at the Palais des Nations in Geneva, Switzerland.

According to the source, Peñalver will meet with high-ranking officials of the Geneva-based  International Organizations and the United Nations Organization, with whom he will discuss various issues on the international agenda.

Cuba assumes the responsibility of presiding over the Conference on Disarmament with the commitment to work so that this forum maintains its relevance,  based on its principled position in favor of multilateralism, peace, and general and complete disarmament, particularly nuclear disarmament, the Cuban Foreign Ministry said.

This body, made up of 65 States, has been mandated by the UN General Assembly since 1978 as the sole multilateral negotiating forum in disarmament.
