Parliament of Catalonia Lashes out US Blockade on Cuba



Madrid, Mar 3.- The parliament of Catalonia urged the United States to end the blockade imposed on Cuba for over half a century, according to the international community.

At Joan Josep Nuet´s suggestion, deputy of the Catalonia Yes We Can Left-Wing Coalition, the autonomous legislative chamber adopted a motion of condemnation to that economic, commercial and financial siege.

In his presentation, Nuet stressed that despite the reestablishment of diplomatic relations between USA and Cuba, the US government continues applying that siege to the Caribbean island.

He stated that the extraterritorial reach of this unilateral measure is the main obstacle for Cuban people progress and full normalization with its USA.

He denounced that the US administration maintains sanctions to third countries, which, he stressed that it violates international law and contradicts the terms of coexistence expressed in the precepts of the UN Charter.

Similar motions were also confirmed by 77 Spanish municipalities, according to Cuban diplomatic sources. (PL)
