HAVANA, Nov. 6 (ACN) Bruno Rodriguez Parrilla, Cuban Minister of Foreign Affairs, called overwhelming the support received today by Cuba at the UN in its fight against the US economic, commercial and financial blockade.
On Twitter, the Cuban diplomat wrote that it was demonstrated at the UN headquarters "a strong rejection of the illegal and criminal policy of USA, in violation of International Law, of a marked extra-territorial character, which harms our people and is the main hurdle to our development".
Today, representatives from many nations voiced their support to Cuba in its claim against the American meddling policy.
Kim Song, head of the delegation from North Korea, was among the lecturers saying that "the longer this outdated blockade imposed on Cuba continues, the more the Cuban people will fight".
Rodriguez Parrilla will address this scenario tomorrow, to present for the twenty-eighth time the draft resolution "Necessity of ending the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by USA against Cuba", which since 1992 has received the majority support of the international community.
The economic blockade of the White House constitutes the main hurdle for the development of the Cuban economy and the full enjoyment of the people and during almost six decades of application the damage caused has reached 138.843 billion dollars.
