San Salvador, April 7 (Prensa Latina) El Salvador’s parliamentary left appealed on Tuesday to humanitarian reasons for the United States to lift its unjust blockade against Cuba, in the context of the global Covid-19 pandemic.
The Farabundo Marti for National Liberation (FMLN) caucus thus supported the call of the United Nations Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres for ending the economic sanctions against different nations such as Cuba.
‘The economic, commercial and financial US blockade which has been imposed on Cuba since 1962 is one of the greatest atrocities in force to date,’ FMLN reiterated.
FMLN deputies denounced ‘this ridiculous blockade’ is the main drawback for Cuba to get medical supplies, technology and food, which makes it harder for it to receive and provide international aid.
‘We ask the US President and his Congress that take into account this particular context and immediately suspend all sanctions that affect the Cuban people,’ the statement added.
