The vindictiveness of the current, and preceding US governments toward Cuba must be more effectively opposed by the NZ government.
Each year the NZ government votes, along with the vast majority of The U.N. Security Council, to oppose the U.S.'s economic blockade of Cuba yet does little else to oppose this arbitrator and illegal action and then ignores its local ramifications.

With a bill before the US Senate threatening to impose sanctions on countries accepting Cuban Medical Aid teams, South Pacific nations who have benefited from Cuban assistance will be penalised.
These sanctions are cruel and vindictive bullying with countries and companies who break them unable to trade in the US for six months and liable for heavy fines.
The NZ government must insist that local banks, financial institutions and transport companies obey international law and refuse to apply these sanctions.
Furthermore, it must insist on the sovereignty of South Pacific nations.
