A statement from that Sri Lankan student group, to which Prensa Latina had access, pointed out that the use of sanctions as a foreign policy tool is inadmissible during a pandemic.

Despite the blockade, Cuba is an example of solidarity with the world and extended its assistance by providing medicines and medical personnel to several countries around the world to support the fight against the coronavirus, the statement expressed.

The document also recalled that Cuba developed its own Covid-19 vaccines, has already begun to inoculate its population, and expects to immunize 70 percent of its inhabitants by late August.

Sri Lankan students and graduates in Cuba reject the brutal, unjust and illegal US blockade against a country that provides free education to thousands of students from poor nations and where the best human rights in the world are performed, the statement pointed out.
