Havana, Cuba_ Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodríguez Parrilla will present this Friday to the national and international media in Havana, the Report of Cuba on the resolution 70/5 of the General Assembly of the United Nations, titled Necessity of Ending the Economic, Commercial and Financial Blockade imposed by the United States of America against Cuba, Radio Havana Cuba publishes.

According to the official website Cubaminrex, the meeting will be carried out this afternoon in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and it will be transmitted live for Radio Havana Cuba, Cubavisión International and the Cuban Television, starting at 14:00 local time.

The digital portal www.cubavsbloqueo.cu will be giving information on this presentation and the actions that will take place in Cuba as in the rest of the world, during the next weeks, to support the voting of United Nations against that of American aggression policy.

In spite the pronouncement of the North American president that it is a need to end the economic, commercial and financial blockade against Cuba, this policy stays and continues causing deep affectations to the national economy and limiting the right of our people to the development.

The measures publicly announced by White House to this moment are samples of their limited reach and of how much the president of USA still can do to modify the application of the blockade appealing to his executive privileges to just restore the bilateral relationships.

As it is explained in last year’s report, the monetary affectation, only in the Public Health sector, is of 2 541 million dollars since the beginning of the blockade.

Nevertheless, it is difficult to calculate the humanitarian impact that the blockade has had taking into consideration the people and families affected by this unjust policy.

In October of last year the international community manifested its overwhelming reject to this policy with 191 votes in favor of ending it, the 24th occasion in which the voting supports the Cuban resolution. Only 2 countries, United States and Israel voted against it.
