June 10 (teleSUR) A resolution demanding the resumption of a policy of rapprochement, trade, and travel to Cuba was passed in the town of Brookline on Thursday.

Regarding the resolution, Cuban Ambassador to the U.S. Lianys Torres said it encourages bilateral cooperation in various fields, including health care, pharmaceutical production and education.   

Through the document, the community members condemned the U.S. embargo imposed on Cuba in force since 1962, which means that more than half a century has passed. 

Brookline’s residents referred to the easing of some bans and regulations made under the presidency of Barack Obama (2009-2017), noting that harsh trade and travel restrictions remain in place.
