The president evoked on Twitter a statement from the historical leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro (1926-2016).

Such aggression has caused millions in losses to the Cuban economy and hardships to the population.
The United Nations General Assembly has ruled for the end of the siege against Cuba by an overwhelming majority in 29 successive occasions, urging Washington to lift it.
