On the agenda of the UN General Assembly on 23rd June is the vote on a resolution calling on the United States to lift the embargo on Cuba, which has lasted for more than 60 years.
In particular, the US government's crackdown on Havana over the past season has led to a significant slowdown in island state trade. Increased restrictions also weakened the ability to procure critical medical supplies during a pandemic. The impact on the health sector is evident in the shortage of critical consumer goods as well as the challenges faced by the Cuban health sector in procuring the necessary materials for food preservation and the manufacture of medicines.
We condemn the inhumane blockade of the Cuban people!
The blockade caused Cuba about $ 3,586.9 million in monetary losses in April-December 2020; combined with losses for the prior period, the total from April 2019 to December 2020 is more than $ 9,157.2 million. Overall, the embargo has caused losses of more than $ 1,377,998 million.
