Syrian FM describes blockade against Cuba as economic terrorism

Syrian FM describes blockade against Cuba as economic terrorism

Damascus, Sep 28 (Prensa Latina) Syrian Foreign Minister Faisal al-Mekdad on Tuesday has reiterated his country's condemnation to the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the United States against Cuba and described it as an economic terrorism.

We demand the immediate cessation of all forms of economic terrorism that the United States and its allies exercise against Iran, Cuba, Venezuela, Belarus, Nicaragua and the Democratic Republic of Korea, the foreign minister said in his address to the 76th period of session of the United Nations General Assembly.

He denounced that some powers used the Covid-19 pandemic as a means to invent political accusations against other countries and the worst, he added, is the imposition of more unilateral coercive economic measures to nations and peoples, simply because they are not in the orbit of those powers.

These sanctions bring suffering and death to nations such as Syria, Cuba, Iran, Sudan, Venezuela and Yemen, because they are imposed in the name of human rights.

But, in fact, they deprive peoples of their basic rights, included health, food and the right to life itself, the foreign minister said.
