South Africa calls the blockade against Cuba unjustifiable

South Africa calls the blockade against Cuba unjustifiable

United Nations, Nov 3 (Prensa Latina) With a perennial gratitude to Cuba's solidarity support, South Africa on Thursday described as unjustifiable the blockade that the United States has maintained against Cuba for more than six decades.

In a speech at the UN General Assembly, the representative of this African country said Washington’s coercive unilateral measures violate international law and the United Nations Charter.

The blockade undermines Cuba’s socio-economic growth and hinders its development, so we call for the lifting of this hostile policy, he said.

He also condemned the inclusion of Cuba in the list of alleged countries that sponsor terrorism and said that Cuba is a champion of the rights of developing countries in areas such as health and education.

South Africa, he stressed, unreservedly supports the legitimate struggle of the people and urges the United States to put an end to this cruel system, in order to write a new chapter of hope for Cuba and its people.

Since 1992, the UN General Assembly has consecutively voted for the lifting of a failed policy, in the opinion of former President Barack Obama (2009-2017).

On June 23, 2021 Cuba had a resounding victory when 184 countries (out of 193) endorsed the resolution ‘Necessity of ending the economic, commercial and financial embargo imposed by the United States of America against Cuba’.

The United States and Israel voted against it, Brazil and Ukraine abstained.
