According to Prensa Latina news agency, the document notes that the Caribbean nation is suffering the effects of the so-called ‘embargo’, a euphemism that can’t hide the coercive and aggressive nature of a series of measures that constitute an illegal blockade.

The text passed by the Argentinean Senate recalls that, every year since 1992, the UN General Assembly, with an increasingly overwhelming majority, has been approving a resolution regarding the necessity to put an end to the blockade, although, as a matter of fact, the number of US economic sanctions against Cuba has increased instead.

“It is necessary to insist on the fact that these measures violate the peoples’ right to self-determination,” the document stresses.

“We are convinced that the time has come to lift this unjust and illegal blockade,” the text adds.

In addition, it recalls that a special declaration demanding the end of Washington’s blockade of Cuba was also approved during the Latin American and Caribbean Summit held last year in Salvador de Bahia, Brazil.
