Former Ecuadorian foreign minister condemns US blockade against Cuba

Quito, Nov 5 (Prensa Latina) The United States blockade against Cuba is a systematic violation of human rights, former Ecuadorian Foreign Minister Kintto Lucas (2010-2012), stressed on Saturday.

The journalist and writer spoke out after 185 countries voted at the United Nations General Assembly this week against the economic, commercial, and financial blockade that Washington has imposed on Cuba for more than six decades.

The world said no to the US blockade against Cuba, a systematic violation of the people’s human rights that has lasted 60 years, Lucas wrote in a message on Twitter. The former diplomat and current columnist for Prensa Latina’s Select Signatures section noted that only the United States, the aggressor, and Israel supported continuation of this set of coercive measures that seek to suffocate Cuba.

On Wednesday, 185 nations (of 193) voted at the United Nations in favor of a Cuban resolution against the US blockade, two nations opposed (the United States and Israel) and two abstained from voting (Brazil and Ukraine).
