So far the U.S. has ignored “with arrogance and contempt” 27 resolutions against the blockade.
Cuba will once again request on Wednesday that the United Nations General Assembly vote on a resolution condemning the economic, financial and trade blockade which the United States has imposed on this Latin American nation for more than 60 years.
Although these victories have marked important milestones in the history of diplomacy, those have not had practical effects so far because the U.S. has ignored “with arrogance and contempt” 27 resolutions against the blockade.
According to Cuban official figures, the U.S.-driven blockade has brought losses to Cuba for US$4.3 billion from April 2018 to March 2019.
In the 60 years that the U.S. has maintained its unilateral coercive measures, Cuba has suffered accumulated losses that exceed US$920 billion.
