Czech and Polish governments co-operate on UN resolution against Cuba
By Nick Carey
The Czech and Polish governments have announced that they are working on a fresh UN resolution condemning human rights violations in Cuba. The two countries have already put forward two such resolutions, and according to a Czech Foreign Ministry spokesman, the new one will contain elements that were previously not passed by the UN. The resolution will not call, for instance, for economic sanctions, but for measures that diplomats say will harm those behind the violations: the Cuban government. The Foreign Ministry spokesman denied that this was in any way related to the recent arrest of two prominent Czechs, who returned to Prague on Tuesday after three weeks in a Cuban jail.
