The historic isolation of the United States from Cuba

The debate and vote on this issue, which began on Wednesday, should underline again the international isolation of the United States, according to observers of the historical process.

Israel, as Washington’s staunch ally, has voted against ending the repudiated blockade on every occasion since 1992, except for 2016, under the Barack Obama administration, when both countries abstained. That year, tt was approved by 191 votes in favor and none against.

In the first vote (1992), the United States was joined by Romania, and in 1993, only Albania and Paraguay supported the Washington’s unilateral coercive measure. On three occasions in the 1990s, it also added Uzbekistan.

Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez denounced at the UN the intensification, especially during the Covid-19 pandemic, of the blockade, which has affected his country for six decades, and which he described as a virus.

The previous US administration of Donald Trump added 243 unilateral coercive measures, 55 of which were adopted in the midst of the world pandemic, which the incumbent administration of President Joe Biden maintains in force.
