Speaking to the program ‘Dossier’ of the Venezuelan Television, Alarcon said that this unjust policy has been stiffened in recent months as US and foreign banks and companies have been fined for having links with Cuba.

According to Prensa Latina news agency, Alarcon added that President Barack Obama has ruled out any possibilities of changing the unilateral measure imposed against the Caribbean nation since 1962, which, according to conservative estimates, has caused economic losses to the tune of $96 billion.

The top legislator stressed that the White House has only changed its rhetoric and the only measure it has implemented was the elimination of remittances and trips to Cuba by Cuban-Americans.

Alarcon recalled that a resolution condemning Washington’s blockade against Cuba was recently passed by the UN General Assembly with the support of 187 countries, two abstentions and only three votes against, including that of the United States.
