Paris, Jun 14 (Prensa Latina) French academic and essayist Salim Lamrani on Monday affirmed that the US economic, commercial and financial blockade against Cuba represents an attack to sovereignty and self-determination of the peoples, and demanded its lifting.

This Washington policy contravenes the elementary principles of public international law, Lamrani, who is also a university professor, warned in statements to Prensa Latina. He considered the siege imposed for more than six decades the main obstacle to Cuba’s economic development.

According to the academic, the United States’ stance lacks legitimacy even in times of war, because although it impacts all sectors of Cuban society, it does so particularly in areas such as health and food, damaging in the first place the most vulnerable population, including the elderly, children and the sick.

Nor is the extraterritorial or retroactive legislation, such as the Torricelli Act and the Helms-Burton Act, acceptable, it starts from a set of sanctions against the Caribbean country that seek to change its political and socioeconomic system, which is an attack to its sovereignty and self-determination, he said.

Regarding the tightening of the blockade with more than 240 measures adopted by the Donald Trump administration, he regretted that his successor, Joe Biden, maintains them until now.

The French intellectual urged President Biden to respect international law, the sovereignty of the Cuban people to choose their own future and the majority will of the international community and US citizens themselves in favor of lifting those sanctions.
