African, Caribbean and Pacific Group condemns US blockade of CubaHAVANA, Cuba, May 28 (ACN) The Council of Ministers of the African, Caribbean and Pacific Group, ACP, approved during its 109th session a new Resolution against the economic, commercial and financial blockade applied by the United States of America against Cuba.

A communiqué from the Cuban Embassy in Brussels indicates that the approved text expresses its full support and solidarity with the Cuban people and government and its firm opposition to the unilateral and illegal blockade imposed by the United States against Cuba, at the same time as it expresses its deep concern and rejects the activation of Title III of the Helms Burton Act and its extraterritorial effects.
According to the declaration, the Council of Ministers urges the Government of the United States of America to lift the unjust and prolonged blockade imposed on the Cuban people, while recognizing that this constitutes the main obstacle to Cuba's implementation of Agenda 2030 for sustainable development.
As a renewed sign of the deep bonds of friendship that unite the ACP countries with the Caribbean nation, the ministers participating in the forum also invited the entire international community to continue expressing its support and solidarity with the Cuban people for the uprising of this unilateral and illegal political genocide.
The approved project followed an intervention by the Cuban Ambassador in Brussels, Norma Goicochea Estenoz, in which she denounced the interfering essence of the Helms Burton Act and the profound extraterritorial scope of its title III, whose application constitutes a gross violation and total disregard of international law, as well as of the agreements adopted in 1996 between the European Union and previous U.S. administrations.
The diplomat explained the nationalization process carried out by the Cuban authorities in full correspondence with international law; she denounced the pretension of President Trump and the Miami mafia to generate greater difficulties and deficiencies for our people and to suffocate the national economy in order to bend us.
The Cuban diplomat, while thanking the 79 member states of the ACP Group for their solidarity, ratified that despite the unquestionable economic impact of these measures, the U.S. administration will not be able to break the determination of Cubans to defend the independence and sovereignty of our country. Nor can it undermine Cuba's solidarity with developing countries, including members of the ACP Group.
