The US government may have believed that by excluding Cuba, denying visas and imposing hurdles, its voice would not be heard, but the result was the opposite.

There were many expressions of support for Cuba at the summit organized by the Biden administration and the Organization of American States (OAS), held from June 6 through 10 in this city of California.

In a succession of speeches regional leaders at the plenary called for the inclusion of Cuba showing the respect earned, through dignity and resistance by this Caribbean country.

Most attendees called for the lifting of the blockade, as suggested by Prime Minister of Dominica, Roosvelt Skerrit, who considered that policy unjust and in violation of the rights of the Cuban people.

For his part, Prime Minister of Bahamas, Philip Davis, spoke about the human damage of that unilateral blockade and warned that the persistence of these embargos, blockades and sanctions against Cuba will further harm the population.

President pro tempore of the Community of Caribbean States, John Briceño, recalled that the blockade against Cuba is illegal and an affront to humankind; in fact, it is anti-American, he said in his speech.

Meanwhile, Foreign Minister of Antigua and Barbuda, Gaston Browne, criticized the United States for including Cuba in the punitive list of world market and American organizations for decades.
