Cuban president highlights world support against US blockade

Havana, Jun 23 (Prensa Latina) President Miguel Diaz-Canel on Wednesday praised the world support against the United States economic blockade against Cuba, and described the vote at the United Nations General Assembly on that issue as a resounding victory.

On his Twitter account, the president underscored Washington’s isolation, given that 184 countries were in favor of the elimination of the US blockade, while three nations abstained and only two voted against it.

The Cuban head of State affirmed that the ‘cynical, deceitful and slanderous imperial speech’ from the United States is as immoral, shameless and obsolete as the criminal blockade, and added that that country has no right to sanction.

We returned and will return to the United Nations General Assembly as long as the US blockade exists, because we respect the international community as much as the empire ignores and disrespects it, the Cuban president insisted.

On Wednesday, the UNGA adopted a new resolution calling for the end of the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by Washington on the Caribbean nation for six decades; the twenty-ninth time it has been approved since its first presentation in 1992.

The United States and Israel were the only countries which voted against the blockade this time, thus remaining isolated in the face of the demands of the majority of the international community.
