UN General Assembly once again urged the United States to end the blockade of Cuba

46
The UN General Assembly (GA) has called on 26 for the first time to end the trade and economic blockade of Cuba carried out by the United States for more than 50 years, reports TASS.




The relevant resolution was supported by the 191 state, including Russia, while the United States and Israel voted against the document.

In the adopted document, the General Assembly stated with regret that "the economic, commercial and financial blockade of Cuba is still in place and has adverse consequences for the Cuban people and Cuban citizens living in other countries."

GA member countries also expressed concern about “the application by states of laws and regulations,” such as the Helms-Burton Act in force in the United States since 1996, which imposed sanctions against foreign companies trading with Cuba. The resolution “urges states in which such laws and measures exist and continue to be applied to take the necessary steps to repeal them or terminate them as soon as possible in accordance with their legal procedure”.

A resolution calling for an end to the blockade of Cuba has been adopted at each session of the General Assembly, starting with 1992. In 2016, Washington, which began the process of normalizing relations with Havana, abstained in reviewing the draft resolution.

In this regard, the United States Permanent Representative to the UN, Nikki Haley, made a public apology to the people of Cuba for speaking out of her predecessor Samantha Power, who said a year ago that "the island’s future lies in the hands of the Cuban people."

Unfortunately, as of today, the future of Cuba is not in your hands. It is in the hands of your dictators,
stated haley.

        The United States and Israel voted against the document.

          According to the resolution on the DPRK sanctions proposed by the USA, Russia voted “FOR”. Something you do not spawn on the "Vasalism" of the Russian Federation ... belay lol

            DPRK is directly close to our borders! Why do we need a nuclear Neighbor? This is a threat!
            What threatens the `` Freedom Island '' with Israel?
            Well, dream ...

              North Korea has transferred nuclear technology to China or Russia, and the DPRK already has them.
              There are reactors, enrichment centrifuges, that is, in fact, we already have a nuclear neighbor in the person of the DPRK.

              Then the question arises, why should the Russian Federation spoil a neighbor by buzzing the USA on aggressive actions against the DPRK ?!

              The answer is also obvious ...

            The move is quite logical, the United States needs support at the UN so as not to be proudly alone.

            So they asked Israel to vote in solidarity.

              Well, if it’s such a thing that UN resolutions do not apply to the United States, then you need to either reform this organization (UN) or reform the States themselves. I don’t know about you, but for me the second option is preferable. Thy Will, Lord, but something in these very States is not good lately. They were unbelievably unbelievable in their obsessive desire to dictate to all countries their vision of the world order in general and developed American democracy in particular. They play with fire, for sure I say.

                Oddly enough, the states precisely for this option, only in their favor. request Hence the conclusion that it is your second option that suits us, there is simply no way out request

            Assemblies (French assemblée, “assembly”) - a prototype of a noble ball, a celebration introduced by Peter the Great into the cultural life of Russian society in December 1718.

            The idea of ​​assemblies was borrowed by Peter from the forms of leisure that he saw in Europe. They were held at all seasons, in the summer - in the open air. The program of the assemblies included food, drinks, dances, games and conversations.
