Cuba stresses US blockade impact on transportation

United Nations, Apr 16 (Prensa Latina) Cuban Permanent Representative to the United Nations Pedro Luis Pedroso stressed on Thursday the US blockade impact on the country´s transportation sector.

On Twitter, Luis Pedroso pointed out that from March 2019 to May 2020, Cuba´s transportation sector has been damaged for more than US$312 million. The US blockade regulations, particularly the measures adopted in 2019 by Washington in order to blockade Cuba, had a devastating impact on transportation sector.

Pedroso, for example, added that Consultores Marítimos S.A. Company reported US$160,000 losses due to cancellation of authorizations for cruise companies to operate in Cuba.

Due to the tightening of the US blockade it could not be possible to acquire B-100 aviation fuel slated for August, September and October 2019.
