Chilean councilpeople oppose US blockade against Cuba

In a public statement, they denounced that Washington has enforced, ‘with arrogance and clumsiness, extraterritorial laws and measures that flagrantly violate sacred political and international law institutions in a number of spheres.’ The text added that this brutal blockade against Cuba is a major political and moral setback for the United States, and the repeated votings against this policy at the United Nations are an example of that.

The statement reviewed the main milestones of the blockade almost since the first days after the triumph of the Cuban Revolution, on January 1, 1959, up to the present, including the passing of the Torricelli Act, in 1992; and the Helms-Burton Act, in 1996.

It also recalled that, during the Obama administration, although relations between both countries were reestablished, nothing substantial was done to end the blockade, and persecutions and sanctions against foreign enterprises that do business with Cuba continued.
