US GOVERNMENT EXTENDS ANOTHER YEAR THE APPLICATION OF THE BLOCKADE AGAINST
The economic, commercial and financial embargo imposed by the Government of
the United States against Cuba remains in full implementation, despite the
continuous claim by the international community for its elimination. The
fundamental objective of that policy, officially in force since early 1960
decade, continues to be causing damage and suffering to the Cuban people.
In recent days, the US Government extended for another year the application
of trade sanctions against Cuba, through a memorandum addressed to the
Secretary of State and the Secretary of Treasure.
This decision was once again implemented under the Trading with the Enemy
Act, claiming that it responds to Washington's domestic interests.
The overwhelming majority of the international community has condemned the
blockade policy against Cuba, inter alia, with the approval of a resolution
in the United Nations General Assembly for more than twenty years in a row,
calling for the end of such a criminal policy.
