Xinhua: UN General Assemble Votes to Urge the US to Cease its Embargo against Cuba

Xinhua reported from the United Nations on October 26 that, in their speeches to the UN General Assembly Meeting, the European Union (EU), G77, the Caribbean Community and Common Market (CARICOM), Venezuela, South Africa and Cuba strongly urged the United States to cease its embargo against Cuba. The EU complained about the extension of the U.S. embargo to a third country and CARICOM suggested that the embargo is unlawful. 187 out of 192 UN member countries voted for lifting the current U.S. blockade measures. This is the 19th time the UN has passed such a motion.
