Radio Cadena Agramonte

Havana, Sept 12.- Delegations from 79 countries demanded the end of US extraterritorial laws and the financial, trade and economic blockade against Cuba during the Ninth Sessions of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Group of African, Caribbean and Pacific countries (ACP) held in Brussels, Belgium.

According to the Juventud Rebelde news daily, the resolution presented by the head of the Cuban delegation to the meeting, deputy Rogelio Polanco, was approved by acclaim and also reiterates the support of the member countries to the resolutions passed by the UN General Assembly in this regard.

The document includes the support of the ACP Parliamentary Assembly, of which Cuba is a full member, to the Declaration of Heads of State and Government of this group approved during their last Summit held in Khartoum, Sudan, in 2006, which expressed their strong rejection of any unilateral and extraterritorial laws.

The resolution passed on this occasion also urges the co-president of this parliamentary body to inform the presidents of the ACP and ACP-European Union councils of ministers, as well as the European Parliament and the Inter-Parliamentary Union, about its content. (ACN).
