Cuba reaffirms its rejection of unilateral coercive measures at UN

United Nations, Nov 5 (Prensa Latina) Cuba reaffirmed at the UN its commitment to multilateralism and its rejection of unilateral coercive measures imposed on sovereign nations, such as the US blockade against the Caribbean island.

Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez made such statements during a meeting with the President of the 74th session of the United Nations General Assembly, Tijjani Muhammad-Bande.

In the meeting held yesterday, the Foreign Minister stressed the importance of Cuba’s struggle against the economic, commercial and financial blockade that Washington has maintained for almost 60 years.

For his part, Muhammad-Bande considered it necessary to reduce the sanctions and unilateral coercive measures imposed against several member states of the multilateral organization.

Such actions are unhealthy for anyone, and the largest United Nations agency has made its position on the matter very clear, he responded to a question from Prensa Latina at the conclusion of the high-level segment of the Assembly.

Hopefully we will find ways to reduce sanctions: it’s not just my point of view, it’s what many UN nations are asking for, the Nigerian diplomat stressed.
