The second session of the group of legislators, held at the Parliament headquarters in Quito on Wednesday, was also the framework to reiterate the will to strengthen historic ties.

The meeting was attended by Cuban Ambassador to Ecuador Basilio Gutierrez, as well as Counselor Zudelis Cosano and Second Secretary Jorge Cano.

During the meeting, the assembly members condemned the blockade imposed on Cuba by the United States, and described the Cuban people’s resistance as an example.

“The blockade is the main obstacle to the full economic and social development of the Republic of Cuba and constitutes a flagrant violation of the human rights of all the people,” said the ambassador, who explained the damage caused by the US policy.

In an open debate on the subject, Juan Cristobal Lloret, from the Union for Hope, declared himself an admirer of the transformative and revolutionary process that has been taking place in Cuba since January 1, 1959, and highlighted Cuba’s help in various sectors, as well as the opening to receive Ecuadorian scholarship holders.

“We cannot do anything other than condemn this blockade (…) We understand that the fight is that of David against Goliath, but [the Cubans] are not alone because there are multiple processes of friendship and condemnation,” he said.

Lloret proposed submitting a statement to the Parliament in rejection of the US blockade, which could later be a resolution that would be voted at the plenary session.
