Bruno Rodriguez Parrilla, Cuban Minister of Foreign Affairs, denounced today the new moves of the U.S. government against some Latin American countries, to force them to change their vote in favor of Cuba in the United Nations.
In the last few days, the US State Department has deployed intense pressure actions, particularly against six Latin American countries, "to force them to change their traditional vote in favor of the resolution of #AGNU that demands the end of the economic, commercial and financial blockade against #Cuba", the Cuban FM published on Twitter.
Cuba "has the unanimous support of the Latin American people and the world and expects that no government will surrender to the ruling of Washington, turning its back on the will of its people, public opinion, international law, ethics and justice, Rodriguez Parrilla told the press at UN.
As has been done since 1992, the Cuban government has received the resounding support of the majority of the international community by presenting each year the resolution "Necessity of ending the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the United States of America against Cuba" at the UN General Assembly.
