United Nations, Sep 21 (Prensa Latina) Cuba's Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez snubbed US Government harsh hostility against his country, while it hardens the blockade it has applied for over 60 years.
Washington 'systematically violates the human rights of the Cuban people by tightening the economic, commercial and financial blockade and its extraterritorial reach, the Minister told an on-line High-Level Segment of the UN General Assembly marking the 75th Anniversary of the United Nations.
The US Government 'brazenly attacks our international medical cooperation as well as the governments that have legitimately asked for it, thus inhibiting the right of other nations to health care,' Rodriguez asserted.
An it does that, 'while being, however, the epicenter of the COVID-19 pandemic that has already taken a toll on the lives of almost 200 000 US citizens as a result of its irresponsibility and electoral opportunism,' he continued.
The Cuban FM highlighted that 75 years after having signed the UN Charter, 'it is urgent that we reaffirm our commitment to the principles of International Law and the strengthening of multilateralism, cooperation with international bodies and the empowerment of this General Assembly.'
He called for multiplying 'cooperation and solidarity. Let us build a democratic, just and sustainable international order.'
