In reply to a question at a hearing during a joint session of the Foreign Affairs committees of both houses of parliament, Di Maio clarified versions released by some media on this matter.

In recent weeks, a resolution presented by non-aligned countries was voted and asked to eliminate the instrument of sanctions as such, not with respect to Cuba, but for the whole world, he explained quoted by Adnkronos News Agency.

After considering the interpretation of what happened in Geneva to be an unacceptable generalization, Di Maio said that Italy did not vote in favor of sanctions against Cuba, and he noted, ‘we are very grateful to Cuba, as well as to many other countries, for the support that we received a year ago in this period.’

In that sense, the minister recalled that Italy voted against the US sanctions against Cuba in 2019, when that issue was discussed at the United Nations, for the last time.
