Havana, Sep 30 (ACN) Different countries all over the world are increasingly demanding the end of the US blockade against Cuba at the high-level segment of the UN General Assembly, Prensa Latina reported.
The Nicaraguan Foreign Minister, Denis Moncada, not only used the forum to call for an end to the American blockade, but also condemned the recent expulsion by the U.S. Government of two Cuban representatives to this multilateral organization.
Actions such as these are one more sign that UN needs a deep transformation and a change of headquarters to fulfill the objectives of its creation and become a multilateral forum at the service of all the countries in the world, without limitations or quarantines for its members, he stressed.
Nicaragua condemned the criminal U.S. blockade against Cuba and all its extraterritorial measures and repercussions, and demanded the ending of all meddling policies that violate international law, with interventionist actions against different people such as Cuba, Venezuela, Syria, and Iran.
On the other hand, the Mexican Minister of Foreign Affairs, Marcelo Ebrad, noted that his country opposes measures such as the blockade against Cuba or the application of sanctions against nations.
South African Foreign Minister Naledi Pando expressed her state's solidarity with the Cuban people and condemned the unilateral sanctions that have been imposed against that Caribbean island and Zimbabwe.
The Grenadian Foreign and Labor Minister, Peter David, considered that the recent unilateral coercive measures against Cuba, such as the reduction of remittances and financial transactions, only serve to weaken Cuba's economic stability and severely affect the socio-economic conditions of that population.
Grenada has always supported the UN General Assembly resolution calling for an end to the economic, commercial, and financial blockade imposed by the United States against Cuba, he recalled.
As it has been demonstrated in the voting held since 1992 in the UN General Assembly, the majority of the international community supports the end of the US blockade against Cuba, in force for almost 60 years.
