Cuba presented for the thirtieth time draft Resolution A/77/L.5: "Necessity of ending the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the United States of America against Cuba" at the United Nations General Assembly. The international community confirmed, once again, the almost unanimous call for an end to the blockade, with 185 votes in favor of the resolution presented.
During the debate and the explanation of the votes, more than 50 countries expressed their support for the Cuban people and demanded the lifting of this inhuman and criminal policy of the US government against our country.
India, once again, joined this demand and its position of rejection of the blockade was stated by the representative of the Indian diplomatic mission to the General Assembly. The Cuban Ambassador, Alejandro Simancas, expressed to the Indian media in a press conference at the Press Club, his deep gratitude to the Government and the people of India for this solidarity support and recalled the many organizations and friends of India who have carried out arduous campaigns against the blockade, for which he expressed his gratitude.
