The World again demands that the
United Status end its blockade of Cuba
• Cuba’s resolution is
approved in the UN General Assembly by 188
countries, with two against and three abstentions
United Nations General Assembly overwhelmingly
approved, for the twenty-third time, on Tuesday
October 27, a resolution presented by Cuba calling
on the United States to end the blockade it has
imposed on the island since 1962.
UN plenary of 193 member nations supported the
proposed resolution entitled ‘The necessity of
putting an end to the economic, commercial,
financial blockade imposed by the United States on
Cuba’ by a vote of 188 in favor.
Since 1992, the General Assembly has demanded that
the U.S. end its hostile policy toward Cuba which
has been implemented by 11 consecutive
administrations, and has cost Cuba’s economy an
estimated 1.1 trillion dollars. The human suffering
caused is incalculable.
