Lebanese solidarity association hails Cuba's victory at the UN

Beirut, June 23, 2021. The Lebanese Arab-Latin American Solidarity Association José Martí today hailed Cuba's victory at the UN when a resolution condemning the US blockade against the Caribbean country was approved at the General Assembly.

During the plenary session of the highest world body in New York, 184 States voted against the U.S. blockade, two voted in favor (the United States and Israel) and three abstained (Colombia, Brazil and Ukraine).

Previously, in a statement sent to Prensa Latina in this capital, the Lebanese entity condemned the economic, commercial and financial siege imposed on Cubans by the U.S. government.

It also called for the union of all countries to denounce Washington's obsolete and criminal policy against the Antillean nation.

The note specifies that the blockade is contrary to the norms and principles of international law and a flagrant violation of human rights.

The unilateral coercive measures are a crime against humanity, the text points out. (Embacuba Líbano/Prensa Latina)
