ACNU claims U.S. acts cynically in its blockade against Cuba

Havana, Jun 15 (Prensa Latina) Representatives of Cuban civil society organizations on Monday agreed that the United States Government is currently acting cynically regarding its economic blockade imposed on the Caribbean nation.

In this regard, the representatives pointed out that the different US administrations go to media campaigns to intend to present such a policy as an action that only affects the Cuban Government, when it really harms the entire people.

In the same way, they are trying to sow the opinion matrix that the blockade is not a drawback to Cuba´s development, said Fermín Quiñones, president of the Cuban Association of the United Nations (ACNU), on the TV program Mesa Redonda (Round Table).

Quiñones stressed that it is regrettable that after Biden´s five-month work, none of the more than 240 measures by Donald Trump have been eliminated.

‘Biden has become an heir to the blockade and its most inhumane application,’ Quiñones said, recalling that the unilateral coercive measures imposed on Cuba are termed as illegal and violate people’s right to life, health, food, and education and even employment.

He added that these measures are contrary to the Charter of the United Nations and yet they remain despite the international community´s rejection, which for 28 years in a row has voted against US blockade.

Dr. Bertha Lidia Castro, president of the Cuban Society of Pediatrics, commented on the difficulties that this US policy poses for professional exchanges between both countries, which could result in mutual benefits.

Likewise, she listed some lines in which the blockade impact is greater such as the acquisition of drugs for treating child cancer, analgesics, anticonvulsants and special foods for children suffering from metabolic diseases.

She also referred to health equipment and supplies that cannot be purchased because they are manufactured in the United States or have some relationship with the U.S., and that are paramount for operating children suffering from heart or neurological diseases.
