Cuba's Report on Resolution of condemnation of the U.S. blockade imposed on the island, presented today to the national and foreign press yesterday
Abelardo Moreno, deputy foreign minister, released a document entitled "Necessity of ending the economic, commercial and financial embargo imposed by the United States of America against Cuba" that will be under discussion at the United Nations on October 29th.
The report was presented at the William Soler Pediatric Cardiology Center, where the national and foreign press learnt of the economic damage that the illegal policy continues to cause Cuban people, which has now reached a staggering one trillion 157 billion 327 million dollars, taking into account the depreciation of the dollar against gold.
Business transactions, academic exchanges, the long list of drugs denied to Cuba, the failure to grant visas for sporting events, and the damage to foreign trade are some of the restrictions that are hurting Cuba according to the report presented by Moreno.
This resolution has been presented by Cuba to the General Assembly of the United Nations for the last 21 years, and has received the overwhelming support of the vast majority of the member countries each time.
