cuba-bloqueoHAVANA, Cuba, Oct 7 (acn) Members of the Asia, Caribbean and Pacific Group (ACP) declared themselves at the European Parliament to be in favor of the lifting of the economic, commercial and financial blockade of the United States against Cuba.

According to the Prensa Latina news agency, this position was expressed by Kombo Gberi, a parliamentarian of Cameroon and co-chair of the Political Committee of the EU-ACP Group States Parliamentary Assembly, which held a meeting in Brussels, capital of Belgium.

Gberi acknowledged that Cuba, despite the high cost of the blockade for its economy and people, has maintained its principles, solidarity and cooperation with their African brothers and with the rest of developing countries, and highlighted the results achieved despite the asphyxiant economic situation to which it is subjected.

Also taking part in the meeting were MPs from other African countries who thanked Cuba for its solidarity and described it as the country that has worked more with Africa, mainly in health and education.

Also, from the Group of Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats, the stance in favor of the elimination of the so-called common position of the European Union against Cuba was reiterated.

The meeting was attended by Cuba’s ambassador to Belgium, Norma Goicochea.

For the twenty fourth time in a row, on October 27, the resolution entitled Necessity to put an end to the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the United States of America on Cuba will be voted again at the United Nations General Assembly.
