This can’t help with the US… From the Indian Financial Express:
Cuba has indicated its support to the candidature of Shashi Tharoor, India’s candidate for the post of UN Secretary General, and affirmed backing to New Delhi’s bid for membership of the expanded Security Council.
With the clear support of Belarus and Cuba, Shashi is not running for the Human Rights vote….
This is also important because Cuba is the next President of NAM. But, especially if Bone is right that the US vetoed everyone in the first round, this could increase the difficulty for US support. And Belarus for European support.
On the human rights issue, our leading candidates seem like pigs in the mud…
