Kingston, Jul 29 (Prensa Latina) Saint Vincent and the Grenadines’ Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves once again condemned the US blockade against Cuba for over 60 years, a diplomatic source reported on Wednesday.
Gonsalves described that policy as inhumane and highlighted that it not only affects Cuba, since it prevents its full trade with third nations.
The PM exemplified the bank obstacles, which as a result of the blockade prevent transactions with Havana for the purchase of the drug Heberprot-B, a med with excellent outcomes in the treatment of diabetic foot ulcer.
The reference to the issue was part of the intervention of the head of Government on the 66th birth anniversary of Commander Hugo Chavez Frias, at an event held on Tuesday at the embassy of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela in Kingston.
On that occasion, Gonsalves recalled his friendship with Chavez, whom he described as a revolutionary leader who created a solidarity, anti-imperialist work and love for the Latin American and the Caribbean peoples.
Words of praise were not lacking for the figures of the Liberator Simon Bolivar and the historic leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro, whom, along with Chavez, he described as ‘giants of the Caribbean.’
The tribute ended with the revelation of a painting by the artist Nerissa King allegorical to the Venezuelan patriots.
