Only Israel Stands with U.S as UNGA Votes for 31st Straight Year to Condemn U.S. Embargo on Cuba

HeadlineNov 03, 2023

The United Nations General Assembly has voted to condemn the United States’ embargo on Cuba for the 31st consecutive year. On Thursday, 187 countries voted in favor of lifting the decades-old sanctions; only the U.S. and Israel voted against the motion. This is Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodríguez.

Bruno Rodríguez Parrilla: “The embargo violates the right of life, the right to health and the right to education, and the well-being of all Cuban men and women. Our families feel the effects of this blockade through the fact that shops are lacking goods and there are long queues, as well as excessively high prices and low salaries.”
