Cuba appreciates Ibero-American nations' support against blockade


Havana, March 25 (RHC) Cuba thanked, at the Meeting of Foreign Ministers of the 28th Ibero-American Summit of Heads of State and Government, in the Dominican Republic, the support of all Ibero-American nations to the demand to end the economic blockade imposed by the United States government more than 60 years ago.

Rodolfo Benítez Verson, National Coordinator for the Ibero-American Conference and General Director of Multilateral Affairs and International Law of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, described this policy as criminal and illegal, as it causes multiple effects on the Cuban people and violates the Charter of the United Nations and the International right.
During his speech, the diplomat transferred the gratitude on behalf of the Cuban people and government to the unanimous demand of the member states to exclude Cuba from the US government's list of countries that allegedly sponsor terrorism.

Benítez Verson advocated for greater and better inclusive cooperation for the benefit of the peoples, while emphasizing the urgency of correcting the deep existing asymmetries and building a fairer, more sustainable, democratic and equitable international order that meets the rights and needs of developing countries.

This meeting constitutes the second body in order of importance in decision-making after the Summit and is held every year to follow up on the mandates issued by the Heads of State and Government of the previous Summit.

The Cuban delegation also includes Eugenio Martínez, general director of Latin America and the Caribbean of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and other officials of the Cuban Foreign Ministry. (Source: ACN)
