The demand was made by Cuban ambassador Rodrigo Malmierca at the UN during discussions of the issue “Threats posed on International Peace and Security by Terrorist Acts.”

The Cuban delegation has for years submitted the UN Security Council and its Commission against Terrorism detailed information on terrorist actions against the island, said Malmierca.

The ambassador said that Cuba has denounced Washington’s protection of terrorists, but no action in that respect has been observed; such is the case of Luis Posada Carriles. However, said the Cuban diplomat, the US government keeps five Cuban antiterrorist fighters in high security prisons.

US ambassador Jackie Wilcott tried to justify her government´s treatment of confessed terrorist Luis Posada Carriles by alleging that in that case Washington acted according to International Law.

In that regard, the first secretary of the Cuban mission at the United Nations, Fermin Quiñones replied to the US ambassador’s justification by pointing out that had the United States acted according to International Law, Posada Carriles would have already been processed for terrorism in that country, or extradited to Venezuela.
