Cuba’s resolution is approved in the UN General Assembly by 188 countries, with two against and three abstentions
The 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.
The 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.
