A report by the Information Office of the State Council (Cabinet) specified that the unilateral imposition of these punitive policies has harmed the peoples of these countries, as it has infringed on their guarantees and led to humanitarian crises.
“On June 23, 2021, the United Nations General Assembly voted for the twenty-ninth consecutive year in favor of a resolution to urge the United States to lift the blockade against Cuba and initiate dialogue to improve bilateral ties,” the text indicated.
It mentioned statements by Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez on the continuity of the blockade and its system of sanctions against Cuba despite the Covid-19 pandemic.
“Such extremely inhumane acts have caused enormous losses to the Cuban economy and society. The economic blockade is a mass, flagrant and unacceptable violation of the Cuban people’s human rights.” “Like the virus, the blockade suffocates and kills, and must cease,” the document added.
China’s report referred to the devastating impact of Washington’s economic sanctions on Venezuela and Syria, adding that in Iran’s case it has hit the oil sector and resulted in the country’s inability to import the medical supplies necessary, thus endangering the people’s right to life and health.
The United States has always pursued hegemonism, unilateralism and interventionism, and has frequently resorted to force, resulting in a large number of civilian casualties, the document pointed out.
