Washington, September 12 (RHC)-- Cuban diplomats at the United Nations received from the City Council of the U.S. city of Hartford, capital of Connecticut, a copy of the resolution it issued demanding the end of the blockade against the island.

According to José Oro, a member of the board of directors of the Global Anti-Blockade Movement (NEMO), the document asks President Joe Biden to end Washington's economic, commercial and financial siege against Cuba and the normalization of bilateral relations.

The text was delivered to Havana's permanent representative to the United Nations, Pedro Luis Pedroso, Ambassador Yuri Gala, Minister Counselor Roberto Hernandez and Second Secretary Ernesto Sierra, said Oro on his Facebook account.

At the end of last week, the representatives of the Caribbean nation made a trip to the state of Connecticut to exchange with residents about the reality of the island and promote bilateral ties.

Their program included tours of the communities of Hamden, Hartford, Middletown, Willimantic, and New Haven, meetings with officials, legislators, mayors, union leaders, representatives of more than 20 organizations, scientists, academics, and other sectors of society.

The Cuban delegation took advantage of the occasion to thank the cities of Hartford, New Haven, and their elected officials for passing resolutions calling on the US government to end the blockade considered a violation of human rights and the main obstacle to the development of the island.

Likewise, they expressed gratitude to the solidarity activists with Havana and advocated projects for exchange in areas such as education, culture, and sports.

The Global Anti-Blockade Movement arranged for Connecticut General Assembly member Edwin Vargas to extend an invitation to members of the Cuban mission to the United Nations to visit the state and have a goodwill exchange with the people.

The City Council of Connecticut's capital city passed the resolution last July, which NEMO considered a significant step toward ending a hostile policy that has negatively impacted both peoples for more than six decades.

Hartford's initiative joins calls from other U.S. cities, such as Boston, Massachusetts, which also call for eliminating trade and travel restrictions between the two countries.
