The comments double down on the calls by President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador to support Cuba, as the third shipment of humanitarian aid departed from Mexico on Wednesday.

July 28 (teleSUR) Mexican Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard remarked on Wednesday that the U.S. blockade against Cuba “has reached the limits of logic and ethics,” as Mexico urges the world to support the Caribbean country tackle the COVID-19 pandemic.

The U.S. harassment on Cuba “is reaching the limit of logic, even of the ethics of the blockade, because in the face of a humanitarian crisis such as the one caused by the pandemic, how do you justify telling a country that it has no right to oxygen?” the official explained during an interview with local newspaper La Jornada.
