Referring to the sanctions that the Cuban people have suffered for more than 60 years, the foreign minister highlighted in a tag that the blockade kills.
Because of the sanctions imposed by the Trump administration, a donation of medical supplies from Alibaba President Jack Ma's Foundation could not reach Cuba because the company transporting the material had US interests.
