HAVANA, Cuba, Nov 6 (ACN) The Cuba Cooperation France Association (CubaCoop) urged to increase international pressure to end the US blockade on the Caribbean island, a measure this group described as injustice.
On its weekly publication of La lettre électronique Hebdo, the association founded in 1995 to promote solidarity and collaboration with Cuba stressed that nothing can justify the economic, commercial and financial siege imposed on the Caribbean nation and advocated for defending each country's right to freely choose its social system and its leaders.
Countries such as France, which officially reject the blockade, must therefore do everything possible not to be the target of that policy or follow it, continuing trade development and trade and cooperation agreements with Cuba, the association said referring to the extraterritorial nature of the American blockade.
CubaCoop has materialized in the last 20 years, along with French and Cuban authorities, dozens of social benefit programs in sectors such as water, food security, renewable energies, environmental sanitation and culture.
CubaCoop also highlighted Cuba's response to fight the Covid-19 pandemic and its success in reducing its impact in terms of cases and deaths.
