MOSCOW, October 22. (Itar-Tass). — Russia’s State Duma on Tuesday has once more urged the international community to demand lifting the U.S. blockade of Cuba.
The MPs adopted a letter “To United Nations General Assembly, parliaments of UN member states and international parliamentary organizations on the necessity to lift the trade-economic and financial blockade of Cuba”.
In the letter, the lower house of the Russian parliament confirms its position stated in applications of 1994-2012. “An unilateral blockade of the Republic of Cuba established by the U.S. in contravention with the UN is not only thwarting the progress of Cuban economy, but also inflicts the rights and legal interests of Cuban citizens residing in other countries, as well as their residents,” the address says.
The deputies regret that the resolution on the need of lifting the economic, trade and financial blockade initiated by the U.S. against Cuba, adopted November 13, 2012 by the majority of votes at the UN General Assembly, remains unheard in the U.S. “State Duma deputies once more express their support to the people of friendly Cuba,” the document writes.
This is the 11th similar resolution of Russia’s State Duma.
