For the first time at the UN General Assembly, not a single country voted to continue the genocidal policy imposed on Cuba by the US government.  The result of the vote – 191 in favor and two abstentions – is a triumph of the heroic resistance of the Cuban people.

The United Nations General Assembly voted today, October 26, to approve the Cuban resolution expressing the need to put an end to the over 50-year economic commercial and financial blockade imposed by the United States on the island.
A total of 191 countries voted in favor of the resolution, with none voting against, and only two abstentions, for the first time ever – the United States and Israel.
The position of the United States expressed this morning is a positive sign, stated Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodríguez at the UN headquarters, but the truth is that the blockade persists and impacts Cuba’s current reality.
The result of the vote – 191 in favor and two abstentions – is a triumph of the heroic resistance of the Cuban people.
