Lift embargo on Cuba, Ghana tells U.S

Filed under: Africa |

Ghana has called on the U.S. to lift the embargo placed on Cuba in 1960, describing it as outdated and unnecessary, a government statement has said.

The statement quoted Ghana’s Deputy Foreign Affairs Minister, Mr Thomas Quartey, as making the call during a meeting with Mrs Teresita Fraga, Cuban Deputy Foreign Affairs Minister in Accra. The U.S. placed a partial economic and financial ban on Cuba in Oct. 1960, about two years after the regime of General Fulgencio Batista was deposed by the Cuban Revolution, which was led by its maximum leader, Fidel Castro, Ernesto 'Che' Guevara and other prominent Cuban patriots.
