International Community Overwhelmingly Condemns US Blockade

Havana, Oct 30 (acn) The United Nations General Assembly today overwhelmingly condemned the US economic, financial and commercial blockade of Cuba, after voting the island's resolution against the US unilateral measure with 184 votes in favour, one abstention and only 4 votes against.

This is the sixteenth consecutive year in which the UN condemns the US measure imposed on the island for over four decades. The international community has increasingly supported Cuba since the country presented its first draft resolution against the US blockade in 1992. Last year, 183 countries backed the Cuban resolution, which stood for 95 percent of the total of UN member nations.
