Abdulah calls on Biden to end Cuban blockade

Abdulah calls on Biden to end Cuban blockade
"On June 23, the United Nations General Assembly voted for the 29th consecutive year that the US should end the blockade. Only two countries – the United States and, not surprisingly, Israel, voted for the blockade to remain in force. One hundred and eighty-four countries supported Cuba's resolution that called for the US to end the blockade. "Votes have been very similar in the previous years at the UN. The US stands in isolation in the face of this overwhelming world opinion against it," Abdulah said.

"This second lockdown was far more extensive and far more damaging and there was no further assistance from the Government which has put a lot of pressure on business."
