Calls continue at the United Nations against the U.S. blockade of Cuba

The president of Suriname, Desire Delano, stated that his country is deeply concerned by the persistence of the U.S. blockade against Cuba, which the U.S. has maintained for half a century, which aims to change the political, economic and social development of the island.

“These coercive measures, -- she stated -- cause difficulties and have severe effects on the development and well being of the Cuban people”

The president of Dominica, Nicholas Liverpool, emphasized the necessity of multilateralism and cooperation between states. “These challenges can only be surpassed in a world environment where respect exists for the integrity of other countries, for the non-interference in the national affairs of others, for the respect of sovereignty and the right to free determination. In that respect, Dominica calls for the discontinuance of the economic blockade of Cuba.”

For Stephenson King, the prime minster of Santa Lucia, anachronisms still exist in the world, and one of the them is the U.S. blockade against Cuba, he stated.

The White House did not respond to the comments of these chiefs of states.
