UN Calls For US to End Embargo on Cuba
The UN General Assembly on Thursday called for an end to the decades-old US embargo on Cuba, adopting a resolution by an overwhelming majority and rejecting U.S. moves to criticize Havana’s human rights record.
It was the 27th time that the 193-nation assembly has issued the call to lift the embargo imposed in 1962.
The resolution presented by Cuba was adopted by a vote of 189 to 2 with no abstentions. The US and its ally Israel voted against while Ukraine and Moldova did not vote.
