Congressman Marín claims that Colombia turned its back on Cuba

Bogota, Jun 24 (Prensa Latina) Colombian lawmaker Sergio Marín on Wednesday claimed that his nation's abstention at the UN vote against the US blockade imposed on Cuba is to brush off and turn its back on our brotherly country.

‘It´s being unfair in front of the people who have risked it for peace, not only in Colombia but in the entire continent,’ said Marín.

The UN General Assembly (UNGA) on Wednesday adopted a Cuba´s new resolution calling for the end of the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the United States on the Caribbean nation for over six decades.

In the vote, 184 nations voted in favor, two against (United States and Israel) and three abstentions (Colombia, Brazil and Ukraine).

For the twenty-ninth time since 1992, all countries categorically called at UNGA to end this hostile policy on Cuba.

Over 15 nations and international bodies including the Non-Aligned Movement, the Group of 77 plus China and the Caribbean Community condemned the damage caused by the US blockade and called for its end.

Diplomats and senior representatives of different countries condemned the increased hostility and the unilateral coercive measures the United States has been imposing on Cuba amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
