Uruguay’s FA calls to end US interference and blockade against Cuba

Montevideo, Apr 1 (Prensa Latina) Uruguay’s Broad Front (Frente Amplio-FA) rejected what it described as the interference of the United States in Cuba’s internal affairs and the blockade Washington still maintains against that nation.

A statement from the Executive Secretariat of the leftist alliance reiterated its support for the self-determination of peoples and non-interference in their internal affairs.

The FA reiterates its absolute rejection of the economic, commercial, and financial blockade imposed on Cuba by the United States since 1962, the statement noted.

At the same time, it condemned “Cuba’s inclusion in Washington’s State Sponsors of Terrorism (SSOT) list. Cuba was added to that list by Donald Trump in one of his last administrative acts in 2021.”

The FA noted that the blockade and the list harm Cuba’s access to resources, including food and fuel for thermoelectric power plants.

Under these circumstances, we once again call for ending the US economic blockade, as the international community has overwhelmingly done year after year to the United Nations, and Cuba’s immediate removal from that list, the statement concludes.
