Cuban president appreciates world support against US blockade

Havana, Feb 26 (Prensa Latina) Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel express gratitude on Sunday for the broad international rejection of the blockade policy imposed and reinforced by the United States for more than six decades.

On his Twitter account, the head of State noted, “So many demonstrations of solidarity with Cuba and condemnation of the economic blockade, which seeks, unsuccessfully, to subdue our people, are moved and encouraged. Our gratitude to our friends and compatriots abroad who demand a better world without the blockade.”

Diaz-Canel referred in those terms to the solidarity caravans that take place on the last Sunday of each month, in cities on practically all continents, led by friends of Cuba and Cuban residents abroad.

On its official Twitter account, the National People’s Power Assembly (Parliament) pointed out that “the blockade is a mass, flagrant and systematic violation of all Cubans’ human rights.”

The Parliament thanked “all parliaments and international legislators who have demanded the elimination of this criminal policy for their solidarity with Cuba.”

Reports from several countries, including the United States, give accounts of the demonstrations of emigres and friends of Cuba who speak out for the end of that policy that seeks to strangle Cuba economically and financially and for the country’s removal from Washington’s State Sponsors of Terrorism list.
