Ramallah - The ruling Palestinian National Liberation Movement Al-Fatah on Tuesday condemned the commercial and financial blockade imposed on Cuba by the United States for almost 60 years.
We are closely following the US measures that call for worsening the blockade on Cuba with the aim of giving in the determination of its Revolution and its people, which have resisted and confronted the policies imposed over several decades, Al-Fatah says in a statement.
The Palestinian movement pointed to stress conflicts on all continents and the flagrant interference in many regions of the world as evidence of Washington's failure to impose its policies on free nations.
We have the cases of Syria, Yemen, Iraq, Libya and Venezuela. Facing its inability, the US administration has begun to falter in its actions with the essential causes of the conflicts worldwide, whether in the Middle East, Africa or Latin America, the document reflects.
Al-Fatah stressed that the US decision regarding the tightening of sanctions imposed on Cuba is not very different from its decision to bloc the Palestinian people through its scandalous position on the side of Israel that occupies Arab territories; in addition to his disapproval of all resolutions of international legality.
Chapter III of Helms-Burton Act, which allows US citizens to establish legal demands on Cuban institutions at US courts; in addition to worsening trade restrictions, traveling the Caribbean nation and sending remittances, all this represents a flagrant intervention by the United States against the Cuban Revolution, the Palestinian political organization said.
