Cuba denounces effects of US blockade in Barbados

Bridgetown, Jul 20 (Prensa Latina) Ambassador to Barbados Sergio Pastrana denounced the effects of the United States economic, commercial and financial blockade against Cuba for over six decades, local media reported on Tuesday.

Interviewed by the Barbados Today newspaper on the recent disturbances that took place in Cuba, Pastrana said that the situation faced by his country is the result of the effects of the long and tightened blockade by the United States.

The enforcement of 243 coercive measures under the former Donald Trump administration tightened that unilateral policy amid the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic, he assured.

Those sanctions hinder access to the necessary supplies to curb the disease, the diplomat stated.

On June 23, Cuba denounced at the United Nations General Assembly that from April 2019 to December 2020, the US blockade had caused losses worth 9.157 billion dollars and that the human damage, suffering and shortages caused to Cuban families are incalculable.
