Cuba denounces that US blockade stimulates irregular migration

United Nations, May 20 (Prensa Latina) Cuba denounced to the United Nations the stimulus that the US blockade currently represents for the irregular migration, which is tightening amid the difficult conditions derived from the Covid-19 pandemic.

That policy aimed at provoking discouragement among the Cubans through deprivation and needs flagrantly violates the most elementary human rights, Cuban Deputy Foreign Minister Elio Rodriguez stated.

Several US administrations have implemented actions that encourage the irregular emigration from Cuba to the northern nation and this favors criminal activities such as smuggling and human trafficking, he stressed.

Rodriguez also reiterated on Thursday Cuba’s commitment to the objectives of the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration, when he participated in the first review forum of that agreement.

In his speech, the Cuban deputy foreign minister called for a real multilateral cooperation on international migration, based on the purposes and principles of the United Nations Charter and the international regulations.

The first review forum of that issue, which concludes at the UN headquarters in New York this Friday, takes place four years after the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration was adopted.
