HAVANA, Cuba, Nov 8 (ACN) President Miguel Diaz-Canel celebrated today on Twitter Cuba's victory at the UN General Assembly, where a resolution was passed against the blockade imposed on his country by the United States.
Diaz-Canel considered that the approval of the resolution against the economic, commercial and financial blockade - 187 nations in favor, three against and two abstentions - constitutes a victory for the Cuban people and the people of the world.
"VictoriaDeCuba in #UNVsBloqueo es victoria del pueblo cubano y de los pueblos del mundo que nos acompañan en la resistencia," the president tweeted.
Cuban leader expressed his trust that the Cuban people will defeat the U.S. blockade, with the support of the international community, which voted overwhelmingly on Thursday in the United Nations against this meddling policy.
"Lackey governments show where their affinities are and they are alone beside the empire," Diaz-Canel added, referring to the countries that joined the U.S. against the Cuban draft resolution, Israel and Brazil, and those that abstained, Colombia and Ukraine.
In the same social media, Diaz-Canel wrote that "to vote against Cuba is to vote for the continuity of the genocide.
For the twenty-eighth time, the governments of the world rose up today at the UN and approved the resolution "Necessity of ending the economic, commercial and financial blockade of the United States of America against Cuba".
The White House blockade against Havana constitutes the main hurdle for the development of the Cuban people, and in almost six decades of application the material damages caused to Cuba have reached 138.843 billion dollars.
