UN Special Rapporteur to Visit Cuba

Havana, Oct 26 (acn) The UN special Rapporteur on the Right to Food,
Jean Ziegler, will begin an official visit to Cuba next Sunday at the
invitation of the Cuban government.

Ziegler?s upcoming visit is in tune with Cuba’s willingness to resume
this particular modality of cooperation with UN universal and
non-discriminatory mechanisms in the field of human rights. The action
follows the decision, last June, by the Human Rights Council to finish
the mandate of the so-called personal representative of the Human
Rights High Commissioner for

Ziegler will learn about several projects and programs underway on the
island to guarantee food for all Cuban citizens and to keep advancing
the construction of an increasingly fair society, despite the
difficulties Cuba faced under the economic, commercial and financial
war imposed on the country by Washington.

During his stay, which will last until November 6, The Special
Rapporteur will meet with Cuba officials and visit several provinces.
