Cambodia reiterates rejection of US blockade against Cuba



Havana, December 27 - Cambodia considers it a moral principle to accompany Cuba in its noble struggle to end the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the United States on the Caribbean island for almost six decades.

The National News Agency reported that this is the position expressed by Nin Saphon, president of the Parliamentary Group of Friendship with Cuba in that Southeast Asian nation, during a meeting at the Parliament's headquarters with the Cuban ambassador, Liurka Rodriguez.

Saphon highlighted the historical friendship ties between both countries and Cuba's precious contributions to the development and training of human resources in Cambodian land.

The legislator recalled her visit to Havana in early November, where she participated in the Anti-imperialist Meeting of Solidarity, for Democracy and against Neoliberalism, whose Final Declaration expressed the will of more than a thousand attendees.

For her part, the Cuban ambassador thanked Cambodia for its unwavering support for her country's cause and acknowledged the participation of members of the parliamentary group in the different regional solidarity meetings with Cuba.

Rodriguez expressed the wish that the parliamentary bonds between both nations increase, as in the rest of the fields, of the celebration in 2020 of the 60th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Havana and Phnom Penh. (RHC)
