Thursday, October 22, 2015

St. George’s, October 22, 2015. – The Cuban Ambassador in Grenada, María Caridad Balaguer Labrada, expounded the main aspects of the report presented by Cuba to the UN Secretary-General, under resolution 69/5 regarding the US blockade on Cuba, to the Grenadian Press, at a Press Conference held at the headquarters of the diplomatic mission. In her presentation, she stressed that despite the new stage in bilateral relations with the US, the recrudescence of the blockade still remains, particularly the persecution of Cuba's international, financial transactions with the imposition of heavy fines against banks and financial institutions. She also made mention of the major constraints facing our country as a result of the implementation of this unjust measure. However, she said that President Obama has ample opportunities to significantly modify the blockade through his executive powers, without recourse to the US Congress. She reiterated the importance of continuing to denounce the effects of the embargo in all possible scenarios. Moreover, she thanked Grenada and CARICOM for their position against this measure. She also noted the overwhelming support given to Cuba in the UN General Assembly regarding the voting on the resolution on the US embargo against Cuba, which will be presented again on October 27. Journalists from CC6 News, Now Grenada, MTV News and CARIBVISION were present. (The Cuban Embassy, Grenada) Read More...
