US Blockade of Cuba is an Example of Failure of Imposed Policies, Lavrov Asserts


Moscow, May 27 ( Prensa Latina ) The US Blockade against Cuba is an example of the failure of the impositions and dictates of policies in international relations and the futility of pressures, Russian Foreign Minister Serguei Lavrov declared on Monday.

We share with our Cuban friends the conviction that the illegitimate sanction is unacceptable and we reaffirm our categorical rejection of the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the United States against Cuba, Lavrov stated.

We will continue with our firm support for Havana’s fair demands for the immediate end of this blockade’, said the Head of Russian Diplomacy in a joint press conference with his Cuban counterpart, Bruno Rodriguez Parrilla.

Such a position is a joint demand of the overwhelming majority of the world’s states, the Russian Minister reiterated at the end of official talks at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Regarding bilateral cooperation, Lavrov stressed that Russian companies are committed to the implementation of long-term and large-scale projects of the Cuban development program, Lavrov added.

This includes energy, metallurgy, the field of transport infrastructure, the supply of automotive and railway equipment, agriculture and light industry, the Russian official asserted.

We have positive plans for the future in all these areas, as well as in health, pharmaceuticals, information and communication technologies, the use of the atom and cooperation in the peaceful exploration of space, the Minister also considered.
