HAVANA, Cuba, Sep 17 (ACN) Maxwell P. Vah, Assistant Minister for American Affairs in the Liberian Foreign Ministry, said that his country will continue to be coherent and consistent with the permanent support given to Cuba in its fight to lift the US blockade, which he described as an inhuman action.
During a meeting held between Vah and Mercedes Martinez, head of Cuba's diplomatic mission in Liberia, the official discussed how the economic, commercial and financial blockade of the United States against the Caribbean island has been intensified during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The blockade imposes challenges, creativity and firmness, but Cuba is not alone in its struggle; the world extends its hand to it in a gesture of reciprocal solidarity, said Vah, according to a press release published on the official website of the Cuban Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
The Cuban diplomat reaffirmed that the blockade imposed by the United States unilaterally on Cuba continues to be the main obstacle to the full economic development of the Caribbean country, and the cause of the greatest shortcomings and limitations of the Cuban people.
Cuba and Liberia reestablished their diplomatic relations in 1974, and under the concept of respect and mutual aid, both nations strengthen their ties for the good of their peoples.
Those bonds made it possible that during the Ebola epidemic in 2014, 55 Cuban doctors helped Liberia to face the disease, once again putting into practice the altruistic work of Cuba.
