Brazilian Congressional Committee demands the U.S. to change its Cuba policy
Brasilia, March 23, (RHC), -- A committee of the Federal Senate of Brazil urged the United States to free the five Cubans imprisoned there since 1998, and to lift the economic and political blockade imposed by the White House against Cuba, over half a century ago.
A resolution presented by Senator Eduardo Suplicy, containing such demands, was approved unanimously by the members of the Committee on International Relations and National Defense of the Brazilian Senate.
The document states that the Cuba-US conflict brings unnecessary stress to Latin America, damaging all involved.
Likewise, it demands the US government to close the prison installed in its illegal base in Guantanamo bay, eastern Cuba.
The Brazilian senators emphasized that it is time to leave behind the sad days of the Cold War and work together for a brighter tomorrow.
