Panama, Feb 10 (Prensa Latina) A social organization in Panama delivered a letter to Foreign Minister Erika Mouynes, requesting her to speak out for the elimination of the US blockade to Cuba, which currently remains in force.
The National Front for the Defense of Economic and Social Rights also requested help to exclude Cuba from the list where the US government includes the countries that sponsor terrorism.
The letter, delivered on Tuesday at the headquarters of the Panamanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, repudiated those US actions that affect ‘a heroic people’ and exhorted Mouynes and her Ministry to make a statement of condemnation and assume a sovereign role in this issue, the letter highlighted.
The Panamanian governments from 1994 to date have spoken out at the UN General Assembly for the lifting of the commercial, financial and economic blockade against Cuba, and even, as of 1997, they have responded to the notes by the UN secretary-general about this issue.
Only in 1992 and 1993, Panama abstained under the government of Guillermo Endara, who took office at a US base some few days of the US Army invasion to Panama in December 1989.
Several social organizations and prominent figures in solidarity with the Cuban people spoke out in January against the inclusion of Cuba as a terrorist state by the ‘crumbling administration’ of Donald Trump.
